    ljs317, that's so sweet of you! But hey, you're almost caught up if you've only got September to do! So you're ahead of the game! I'm sure you'll do a great apple theme for September, apples really lend themselves well to applique.
    Hugs,
    MaryAnna

    I'm trying to create an apple block, too, but am having a little problem. Can anyone suggest how to get the stem down into the apple instead of floating in space the way it is? I'm going to post this in the main thread, too, so more will see it.
    Hugs and smiles.

    I flipped the leaf over but prefer it on the other side

    I am in the same boat, almost... I have only one month done, and am floundering under a project someone else thinks I need to do. Isn't that always the way :lol:

    Hi MaryAnna and Wildyard! Your blocks are just great Wildyard! I have not worked on August cuz I am not sure what I want to do there! Might end up doing them as is. The September block I did cheat a bit and took the look of MaryAnna's. I have to see how I like it with nothing between the blocks. Here are the blocks: I haven't appliqued them yet, I might use black thread to highlight them or brown.

    Apple blocks...

    Why aren't the apples falling off if they aren't sewn on yet? I don't see any pins in them. They are great apples!! Maybe I'll go the applique route, too. So far I'm not happy with my apples. Sighhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...........

    LOL, the apples are held on with Heat and Seal bonding.. think that is what it's called! Yes I looked at the block and thought I would rather make the ones I have. easy way out maybe, but I do like them best! How is your August row coming??

    I love what you are all doing.."SUPER" - MaryAnna,,great job.....WILDYARD, love your apples..... :-) What about if you just stitch the leave all around to secure it - just underneath the leaf.....it will be kind of a 3-D effect.....
    I had better get moving - I am behind because of extra projects, and not enough time given to this project..I still have August and September to do..perhaps this weekend I can catch up...
    I have been thinking of changing the August block as well....not sure what I am doing yet....
    Glad to catch up with everyone this morning...

    Sharon, I have to agree that I think we all found a couple of new sewing words in January....that month was a STITCH!!!!!!! :-0

    Hi BIll, This site looks fun. I did not know it was here. I may try to catch up or at least get the patterns. Talk to you soon. I love what everyone on here is doing. Such wonderful talent.

    Would a small shape - kind of a triangle - to the right of the leaf work ? :-)

    I've given up on the apples for this time. Maybe for another month I'll work on them some more. Thanks all who made suggestions tho, I appreciate your time and thoughts. Hugs and smiles.

    I like the way you have different 'varieties' of apples. :-)
    I haven't started the blocks , but I'm saving them for later.
