Introducing Clam Flowers!

So this blog is all about quilting.  Especially my favorite applique!  And I realized that I didn't have any applique projects in the works to share with you.  PROBLEM!  So, I had to create something new.  (Play with fabric?  Okay!)  I decided that I wanted to do something a little different.  So I decided to do clamshell shaped blocks....wish me luck putting it together eventually...

Here's my first block, first layer.  I had a lot of fun fussy cutting the dark purple fabric so that blue dot was right at the top.

Here's the back once it's all stitched up.

Here's the second layer.  I love the contrast in the greens.  It was a goal in this project for me to use a large variety of greens.  I tend to have trouble with that, so I kept it in mind as I was working.

And the back of the second layer.

More Saturday!

I hope you get to quilt today!
