Baby Emma Block and More

I have been working on long term quilt projects and needed a break from them.  The colors of fall are among my favorite so a fall color wall hanging is what I decided to work on.  I am using Jo Morton's "Baby Emma" pattern.  She designed a large applique quilt named "Emma" and has used the applique design in making a wall hanging size piece.  This is the center block for the quil and will be trimmed to 16" square.  Needle turn applique method.  I still need to cut out the surrounding pieced border parts.





I have another block done for the "Beyond the Cherry Trees" quilt I am working on.  It is very similar to a previous block.  On this one, the center section is blank and is to have a quilting design in that section.


I am heading back to the sewing room.

I really enjoy following along with your applique blocks. I probably won't ever make any or at least as many and as well as you do, so I truly appreciate the time and skill involved. Thanks for sharing them!

Love your fall block Karen. I did my very first needle turn block last week. I need lots of practice but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I will be doing more. Any beginner books or tips?

Love the warm, Fall colors of the Baby Emma block.
Those tiny yellow pieces on the BTCT block look like they would be a major challenge to do the needle turned applique!

Those are both just beautiful! You must like balance as they are both so very well balanced within the block. Makes them very easy to admire. What fine work you do.
