I have started teaching a new applique block of the month at The Little General. The pattern is from Kim Diehl’s book Simple Comforts. I have taught the traditional version for several years at Knit One Smock Too. Sue Lauer took my class last year and made this beauty from modern fabrics and of course I fell in love with it. The Little General hung it behind the shop counter, we worked up a class schedule and now I have some beautiful first month blocks to share with you.
There are lots of hours in these blocks. I think they are beautiful!! Thanks to my students for letting me share their work. Enjoy!
Beverly’s; LOVE the teal circles!
Jennifer’s…you are getting a preview of her next block 🙂
Fowler’s block; she’s brand new to applique and her work is wonderful!
Sheri’s; she made that geometric print work!!
Denise’s block; LOVE her flower color choices.
Cydney! She plans to use the black/white fabric again.

Katie’s block. Look at the fussy cut berry holders in the center.
Kay can do anything! First time making circles…
Becky is an experienced appliquer and her color choices are pretty wonderful.
Joan is off to a great start! The multi-color zig-zag is her focus fabric and she’s working on her berry colors.
Ann’s block; she makes wonderful fabric choices!
Jackie’s block. She thinks she will use purple for her berries. First timer; awesome work!
Joyce wins the fussy cut award! Seriously wonderful. Tula Pink never looked so good.
This is Sandra’s block. Never appliqued before…up until 2 am finishing her homework. 🙂 LOVE.
Gina’s; she has “inserted some teal” since this photo. Stay tuned…
And finally, this great picture. Thanks again Sue for hanging your Sampler and letting us ponder.
