this is the last in the postings for the applique BOM medallion. unless i see a strong need for another...
Using the templates provided in the pdf, prepare the leave fabrics for needle turn appliqué using your preferred method. (i use the trace-around-freezer-paper way- i learned it in a hawaaian applique class- it works for me) In the pictures I have used a red marker, I WOULD not do that to the actual piece I would be using in the finished block/quilt. I used red because it shows up nicely in the pics.
Also, I only photoed one leaf unit. I suggest doing all the leaves at once. I store my prepared leaves in a piece of folded cardstock in a Ziploc baggie. Keeps them from getting lost (or eaten barney….TMI- it takes four days to 'recover' an eaten 1/2sq unit) and keeps them from getting wrinkled.

if you have any questions- email me. my add is in the right sidebar.
now i'm sure some really experienced appliquer is reading this and is like, "well duh" but i'm kindda in the self-taught box, and i haven't taken alot of classes. i feel pretty darn proud of myself to have figured that one out by myself...don't ruin it for me....smile and nod, boys, just smile and nod
