Any of you that is following the Moda Blockheads BOW is thinking: That doesn’t look anything like block #22….Well, this is the alternative block graciously designed for all of us non-applique people by Lisa Bongean at Primitive Gatherings. As you can see I was able to fussy cut another of my fat chickens for the center square. I mistakenly said I purchased the chicken/rooster print fabric at JoAnn’s but I discovered it is actually a Waverly print from Walmart.
One of these days I will be happy with my applique, just not today and probably not tomorrow either. I think I have a mind block when it comes to applique, or I am just applique challenged.
Shown below is the ACTUAL block #22. It is called Birdhouse and is designed by the very talented Jan Patek. I did not sew the pictured block. It came directly from Jan’s website so you could see what a beautiful applique should look like. Believe me, if you saw my block it would look nothing like this.
