    Affairs of the Heart, my first 16 blocks completed

    I have been working on my Affairs of the Heart quilt blocks since March after seeing the gorgeous examples here on the board. I had never done needleturn applique before this and so I enlarged the pattern to around 10" and I picked the easier blocks to start with. I watched so many videos on the different ways you could do needleturn applique until I found a way that worked for me.
    I am really enjoying working on them, and can't wait to see each finished block. I am running out of room on my design wall so I thought I would take a photo of the first 16 blocks I have completed, only 20 more to go

    Absolutely gorgeous! I'm doing Affairs of the Heart, too, and I think when I'm finished I'm going to do another, just to use your colors!

    Oh my goodness Woody, these are spectacular. I too have just taken my first tentative steps at needle turn applique and started my first block last night. I am not as ambitious as you, though. I chose a much simpler applique for my first but your have inspired me so much with your beautiful examples.

    I have found I really like needle turn applique. The inside corners give be a bit of a fit, even with clipping them but I am getting the hang of it. Judging by your pictures you appear to have mastered the technique. Simply droolworthy eye candy.

    Wow! Your color choices work well together, bright and cheerful. Love it!
