One Block Applique

I've been working on this large applique block.  The square measures 36".  I prepped the block for stolen moments on the UK trip in May, but there weren't many of those - one long stem stitched in two weeks.  To date, I've completed three stems.  I haven't decided on the flowers for the short stems.  I think I'll leave that for last and let the block tell me what they should be.

It's looking good so far, those big blocks can be a lot to handle.

I love big big blocks. Looks great. I always (well almost) sew my stems down on the machine, even on hand projects. It seems to make the whole thing go faster and it usually looks very neat.
