March Guild Block - Poinsettia
I did the applique with a machine blanket stitch. As far as I can remember, I've never machine appliqued before. I might have done some in high school for home ec. class, but I don't really remember doing any. I think it turned out pretty good for a first effort. There are a few stray stitches on the first leaf that I appliqued, because I was just getting accustomed to how the stitch worked, but all in all I think it looks nice. But I'm also very glad that it is all finished. However, I've already been told that this month's block will be applique as well. . .
