UNfinished Friday

'
This quilt is NOT finished.
But....
It's getting there!
 
This was a quilt-along I started
before I new better!
HAh!

We were instructed to applique petals onto squares.
The last few directions NEVER appeared....
 
So......
How do you get all the squares TOGETHER??
 
I ended up folding and trimming everything OUTSIDE
the circle and appliqueing each circle
onto a VERY BIG piece of muslin
setting them RIGHT next to each other
as I went along.
 
I began in the middle
of the VERY BIG piece of fabric...
folded a middle line and used that for my guide.
 

It worked PRETTY good.
NOT perfect.
 
And....

I'm almost done!
 
I need a few more petals around the edge
to EVEN things out.
 
Can you see my pencil lines there?
 
A few more Thursday mornings
appliqueing petals onto this VERY big quilt.
 
It's not easy doing needle turn applique on a
VERY big piece of fabric!
;/
Good thing I have a nice big TABLE to work on!
 

This one's ALSO UNfinished.
OB-viously!
LOL!
 
I had fun with someone's orphan blocks.
Made a few of my own to blend in.
ADDED a center.....
Kind of a backwards way to do it....
Should have appliqued in that WHITE space
BEFORE sticking it in the center.
AH WELL........
That's the way I think sometimes.  ;)

I plopped a recent project in the middle
just to SEE what it might look like.
 
Hey!
I think I like it.
IF I make that applique design a bit bigger....
it JUST might work!!!
 
That's it for my
UNFINISHED FRIDAY!!!
