    I've done very little hand applique, and what I've done didn't look nearly as pretty as these, so I have no suggestions. I think once you put them in a quilt together the imperfections will fade away.

    These are lovely blocks.

    i love your flowers! i love applique!
    I did use a toothpick on the last block, but need more practice with it...
    I need to look into Piece of Cake... Hadn't heard of them before

    Practice...practice...practice. That's really the only way & to get schooled on technique. There are some great teachers out there. Lots in your area, I'm sure.

    Wow I think you did a good job. I can't applique because I have bad vision and can't see well enough to stitch. But you did really good. I'm proud of you.
