Modern Leaves Block 1

I have been pondering a new series of applique blocks and finally came to a decision.  I'm making applique leaves.  Modern ones.  It's wayyyy to much fun and I'm having a blast creating using my favorite Island Batiks of course! This is going to be such a fun adventure.

For this block I chose this fun blue background to mirror the red shapes.  I then added a string of green dots.

The photo above shows the block with all the stitching complete.  The photo below shows the block without the stitching.   You can see that the green thread really adds definition to the dots.


Taking the first stitches!

I hope you get to quilt today!


  1. Beautiful design Suzy! I love this kind of applique. Your stitching around the patches is so gorgeous.

  2. Love it! I have a hard time doing decorative stitches around small circles; yours look fantastic!
