I started a needle-turn applique class yesterday at Intown Quilts. We will be doing Aunt Millie's Flower Garden by Piece-Of-Cake designs. OMG what have I gotten myself into now? And WHY? Needle turn is my least favorite technique even though I like applique well enough. I worked on block 1 last night and most of the day today. You can see how painfully slow this is going to be for me. I keep repeating to myself: "How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time... and this elephant's name is Millie." The first picture is with the positioning overlay down, and the second picture is with the positioning overlay up. Like I said, this is gonna be a long project for me.
