|All applique, no background seam
Set 2 of the N/M blocks contain a variation of a lily block.
There are many variations to lily blocks in antique quilts. Matilda's block is appliqued. While there is a seam in the middle of her block, I chose not to seam mine. She has seams in other blocks in order to have enough fabric. Aren't we lucky?
The block in the example shown to the left is all applique. The red flower petals are all one piece.
|Lily variation in blues and pinks
This example is for all of you using some blue in your quilt.
The applique is done with a running stitch.
No hidden stitches!
The stems barely touch the flower. The stem curves are gathered or eased into shape.
Some of the leaves go up, in other blocks they go down or are straight.

Looking forward to seeing more N/M blocks with blues.
|Appliqued in a running stitch
This example uses low contrast prints.
Three prints per flower head, nine prints plus the green in one block.
My N/M lily in block set 2 is red and yellow, all applique with green stems and leaves.
There are several variations in Brackman, pieced and appliqued. A great block to "make your own" with a variation.
Thank you for stopping by and looking at lily blocks.
Have a great week!
