My daughters quilt, block #1

I got my daughters quilt under way. Block #1 is a tulip applique. It's 12 1/2 inches. I did not use any pattern for this block, just got ideas from all the quilts I have seen on line. I used a leaf stencil for the flower petals. I think if I make another I will make the dark petals in all 1 piece instead of 2.

I cut out all the pieces, but forgot to take pics. I think you all know what scissors look like.

Pinned every piece to the background fabric with safety pins. That makes it safer to grab and take with me.

I appliqued the green stems, then started on the light pink flower petal.

That's as for as I got so for.
I didn't think to iron it before I took the pics. (Maybe I will think to do that next time.)

Thanks for dropping by.
Smiles to you.
