Needle turn applique

One of my "rule" is to try something new every quilt.....and many time many new things in the same quilt. This time I decided to use needle turn applique technique to add interest to my baby jungle quilt. I will probably ask myself why I had such an idea after appliqueing a gazillion (or 20) flowers :) It is interesting but I am not sure if the results are worth the time. We will see.

  2. I love the look of needle turn applique' but feel like it is above my skill set.

    These flowers are going to look great on that quilt.

  4. I love needle-turn applique because I like how it looks when finished, and I can take it with me to appointments, meetings, and such. Because I don't do much other handwork other than sewing on bindings and labels, needle-turn applique is my quiet time. I don't have any needle-turn applique projects underway right now, but you've inspired me to add one! Lovely flowers.

  9. Even though you said you've nothing to share, I came to have a look. And see what I've found! Beautiful cheery flowers! :-)
    I myself love hand-stitching appliqu├ęs. I find it so relaxing. Yes, it takes some time, but I use this opportunity to watch some tv (one eye on the needle and one eye on the screen). ;-)
