Nature's Journey SAL - February Blocks

Wow, I  finished my  February  blocks, and still have  a week  until the end of the month!

These are my blocks, I changed the  circles  to Suffolk Puffs ( Yoyos )!  I  also  used Cottage Garden threads for the stitching. The  colours I selected are :-

503 Snapdragon
1201 Peacock
605 Cherry Blossom
710 Farmers Market
1001 Red  Carnation.

This was my first time undertaking needle turn appliqué, once I got the hang of it,  I began to feel  a lot more relaxed.  However,  the Needle Turn Police will probably have conniptions!

Furthermore,  I  am using a white background  through out, and 1930s fabrics. I have been  saving some of  these  fabrics for close on fifteen years,  for that  special  project,  and this is the  special  project!

Thank you for taking time to stop by. Happy stitching. Sharon


  1. I am playing with yoyos too – trying to mimic the ones you added to Alice's quilt.

  2. Beautiful work! I haven't been brave enough to try needle turn yet - no quilt police here :)

  3. Your blocks look wonderful with the 30's fabrics against the white background. I think your applique looks great, I find needleturn really hard, it's as though my hands grow big and fumbly.

  4. So sweet. You do a wonderful job! :-)

  5. Thanks for nice words on my blog! I have problems with my e-mail address at the moment, so I can't respond my mail. You asked about pattern on the knitting pouch. I hadn't any, just took a rectangle as big as I wanted. Quilted and sewed together.

  6. Hey Sharon..............hoe are things going?
