Here I Go Again

Once more with my favorite applique method...raw-edge machine buttonhole-stitch. The background was rotary cut and pieced. The outer dark purple melons were cut out all as one piece rather than twelve before I appliqued them on. The four center melons were done the same way.

This is "J-10, Chieko's Calla Lily", an advanced-level block. Number 165 for me...

OK -- this is seriously cute! I've been ignoring this block as best I can, waiting to see how you did yours. I now have a plan, and hopefully this one will be checked off my to-do list over the weekend. Thanks for sharing your steady progress on these!
