When Fabric Speaks

While working on the next applique block for the "My Tweets" BOM, I was having a little trouble deciding what fabric/colour I wanted to use for the flowers. Nothing in my stash really appealed to me for this one, so of course, I had to go shopping. I came across this fabric on the weekend and it screamed "Take me home.........I am the one"I love the way these pieces turned out.
I hope to have the block assembled later today, so I will be able to show the whole look soon.

That flower is beautiful!
I just discovered your blog and I love it. I am a fairly new quilter and I have bee exploring trying applique. So glad I found you. I do not have a blog at this time but I will visit yours often and learn from you. Thanks so much for sharing.

Talk about your V-8 moments -- I just had one after looking at what you did with this fabric! I always think that I have to use the entire motif when fussy-cutting fabric -- well, of COURSE you don't. You can see the fabric the way Jill sees it and make your own fantastic flower. Love this!!

I, of course, like the way you used the fabric to work for you better than the way I used the orange and yellow on my flowers. Gads you are good at this stuff!!!
