Today I finished my second Roseville Album block
I hope the next one doesn't take as long to finish!
There has been some small progress on my second Friends of Baltimore block. This one includes a wreath of flowers and many tiny leaves. So far I have only a few leaves appliqued, so not very interesting to photograph yet.
This morning I started preparing some flowers before they are appliqued.
Those yellow sections are the tiniest reverse applique I have ever attempted!
The red centre I made by cutting a small circle then stitching a tiny gathering stitch closer to the outer edge. Before drawing up the thread I put in the centre a circle of cotton wadding. The pulled threads gathered easily around the wadding and made a puffy flower centre.
More reverse applique is scheduled for tonight. Luckily, not as tiny as this mornings!
Have a great weekend!
