Saturday Sampler applique

The pieces are fused down and ready to begin the hand blanket-stitching to hold them. This will join the other floral applique blocks and the pieced blocks in my Saturday Sampler quilt. 

The basic color scheme of this one is red and aqua, but the applique blocks have a touch of green and gold too. The heart shaped sections were supposed to be 2 layers, but I decided to make them using just the red stripe with no small heart on top. So I cut the center out of them. 

I think we'll get the final block in January. 


  1. This is a beautiful block, Sara. Happy stitching! And Happy New Year!

  2. This block has a "happy" vibe from the colors and the hinted movement. I like it.
