Judy and Kathy, thanks.
It is actually regular applique, no reversing here, lol.

Well done who would have thought that. Just shows you can do it anyway you want.

This is a picture of my completed Block #10 in my "Scrappy Happy Heart" quilt. I'm still not sure which method of applique I prefer. I think I am going to use freezer paper on my next block. I don't get the results I want with the needle turn method. Maybe later on when I have more experience I will try it again.

Losie, Your block is just fine, but I can relate to your feelings of not being satisfied. I'm doing the freezer paper method this time - I like the results I get that way. Had finished appliquing all 36 blocks, but didn't like the bobbin work, so I have been re-doing all of them by hand. Tried needle turn & didn't feel that I was in control as much as I thought I should be.

Losie,
I love your block! I don't see anything wrong with your needleturn, in fact I think it looks as good as most. But I can relate to your dissatisfaction with your own work as most of us are. I am a beginner too with applique and started with the freezer paper routine and thought I didn't get good enough shapes so I switched to the needleturn method. After 17 blocks, I'm getting a little better but still undo pieces on blocks quite frequently. Hang in there---I'm sure it will get easier.

I agree with the other Losie...I'm less than thrilled with quite a few of my blocks! I'm doing needle turn without the FP...which I usually use. I found that my biggest problems are leaving too much seam allowance and making my stitches too large. And of course, like everything else, it takes practice. I like it though because I can pretty much just mark the background, mark the fabric and get going....not all that much "prep" work.

I think your block will fit right into your quilt and you'll be happier with it in a few weeks. I happen to like it!

well, don't know how I missed these!
candi, I do love your block and your so clever to widen the frame.
I was a bit concerned about these paws handling something so thin...it's been a little while since me and the mister mouse have seen anything thin around here except finances, lol!
(working on it though! :thumbup: )

Losie, your block is lovely and if I can say this right...I am so proud of ALL of us, for taking on these challenges and marching on, no matter what we encounter.
These aren't flaws in our blocks, they are character!
I am planning on going over to DD's in a bit, with my camera...yes, I found it...right under my,...what did patti call it?...investigative? nose...my block isn't done, but I'm going to show you all what I've been doing,...lots of "character" lol! :-D
