Slow Stitching this week

 I've been continuing to work on some needle turn applique with these tulip blocks designed by Audrey at Quilty Folk.  I've stitched up three so far!

Yellow, pink, and peachy orange

I decided a purple tulip was needed, so all the pieces and parts are ready for slow stitching today.  I've been ironing the freezer paper templates to the right side of the fabric and that works really well for me to get the shapes cut and traced correctly.

Your flower blossoms are looking lovely. Freezer paper is so handy for so many sewing things. I have heard that it can be used for food storage as well, but that doesn't seem nearly as fun!

Y0u are becoming quite the pro! Do you leave the freezer paper on to guide your needle-turn?

Nice work, you have a garden of tulips.

I'm a big fan of freezer paper for applique, too. What a handy tool it is!

Your applique curves are perfect, Diann. Well done
Happy slow stitching during this Sunday.

Your yellow tulips are sunshiny and happy. The purple tulip will be perfect flowering amongst your yellow pretties.

Very pretty. I've never done needle turn applique, I'm more of a machine blanket stitch type.
