I would think by now my applique skills would be getting better!! There isn't a lot of smooth going on here. I thought I'd use a different green on the leaves. I'm not happy with it, but am not taking it out or making it over. There are enough blocks in this quilt that I think it will blend in just fine.
When I went to print out the next block I see I missed block 8 all together. I remedied that and now have one leaf appliqued on it. There are a lot of leaves on that block!!
