Note to self:

The next time you work hard on a project & really pull out the stops -- especially if the project is for a contest -- say, for example, the Modern Quilt Guild's QuiltCon block challenge -- read the directions more carefully.

the block



It says "avoid appliqué" -- 3 flowers, 4 stems, 24 (!) leaves -- it is pretty much ALL appliqué!

I love your block! It is modern and a great relief after all the "hard edge" geometric blocks!

I love your block! I'm so glad you didn't read more carefully!

But VERY pretty nonetheless; at least you didn't fuse the flowers, etc to your ironing board cover like I did recently (LOL) Julierose

Im surprised they say no applique, But the challenge still inspired this wonderful block so that is a great thing. I love this block!!
