Water Lily B-8

P1010693 Here is the newest addition to my Dear Jane Quilt blocks. I now have 8 of the little suckers!  This one was done using English paper piecing to complete the centre of the design, then I appliquéd it to the background.  The leaves or melon pieces whatever they are called were first pressed over a template using fabric starch,  Then appliquéd after first removing the templates.  No need to cut the background open this way.

Lovely block Julie... I really enjoyed putting mine together, so much so that I wondered about doing a few more of them using different fabrics. Frou
