Tiny Tuesday (Midgets) 4/5/11

I have a block finished!! I finished it late last night, but at least it is finished. :)

This is block #9 - Cactus Bloom. The pattern recommends needle turn applique, but I did machine applique with little zig zag stitches. It's a good thing that I will attempt the machine applique!

I think that it turned out pretty well! And I'm not going to be so scared to make the next applique block. Well, I say that now, but I can't make any guarantees. lol

If you are making any small blocks, post a link here. Now, where are my other Midget quilters???

You did a great job with this block! Don't be scared of applique - once you do your first block or two you'll be a pro!

Needle turn scares me. I'm all about the machine applique if I need to do it. Your block looks great!

Ok-SHARE! This block has COMPLETELY halted me in my tracks!!!!!!

Did you cut the center green circle as one piece and then add the red "flower" on top? Then the green leaves?

Time for me to tackle this monster!!!
