This week our task for Bea's Quilt Along was to applique the center square of the quilt. She suggested using a button hole stitch and I did... up to a point. I did a regular zig zag around the flower petals because I didn't want to spend the extra time it would take to meticulously go around those. I fussy cut the diamonds and flower centers. I had a little difficulty at the points of the diamonds, having never used a button hole stitch before, so they aren't picture perfect but they will do.
Next week we will put all the pieces together. I'm looking forward to seeing how this turns out.
