So I finally got my 20 flower blocks appliqued down. These were origionally published in the Detroit Free Press in the 1930's and again in the Kansas City newspaper in 1932.
As usual I am a raw-edge applique gal. I also like to tear my back ground fabrics and trim to size after the flower is sewn down. The blocks are 8 1/2 x 11 inches and traditionally set four rows across by 5 rows down. I tend to like my tops more square so I am setting this group of blocks five across and 4 down.
