Some seriously cute applique

Hi sweet friends!  Today I want to share a few cute little flowers.  The adorable one inch yo's-yo's were not part of the original pattern but they add a cute little touch of whimsy.  And it really didn't take long to make 3 of them.  

The next flower was a bit more tedious.  One little petal can fit on my finger.  I almost opted for raw edge on this one flower, but what the heck lets give'er a go at turned edge.

And again it didn't take that long...but it did require I wear my reading glasses.

What about a button instead of more teeny weeny applique.

There's only four blocks in the I love Home BOM by Jacquelynne Steves.  So why not add a few little extra WOW embellishments.  It didn't take that long to add them.  

So are you picking your fabrics?  Need some more inspiration?  Wanna join in the fun?  You can find all the information on the FREE I Love Home BOM by clicking here.  It starts in August, so there's plenty of time to pull fabric or better yet buy fabric.  Don't forget there's tons of sponsors and prizes for those who participate.   I bet your wondering how it is I have the pattern in advance.  Well it's because I'm a featured blogger.  So I'll be sharing my blocks and ideas with you along the way.  I can't wait!  This quilt is soooo cute!  Jacquelynne has given us permission to use our blocks however we wish.  So I've drawn up a plan for a quilt just a little larger than the suggested pattern.  I'll be sharing it as soon as possible.
