SHR8 by Rhonda

I added a YoYo flower with 2 buttons for the center and 2 tone leaves.

For round 8 of the SHR I have taken a flower from a piece of fabric used in the back ground and bondawebbed it in place.

I've been enjoying seeing what everyone else has been adding to the blocks for round 8 ... they're all looking great!

Back when I added the heart fabric piece I kept 2 hearts to do 'something' with later ... and now later has arrived I have blanket stitched them on.

For the blue I made a little 1/2" hexie flower and stitched it on.

Happy Embelishing :o)

This was fun and I'm liking my piece better now. I appliqued 2 bits for this round, the raindrop shaped piece and the curved piece above it on the green.

Gene Rounds 6-8

I had lost my SAHR back in November/December.  Today I finally found them and caught them up to date.

I only added a tiny bit of embroidery on this. There are two -one on the dark purple on the left of this picture and one in the middle circle. 

I am sure you can see the Star I appliquéd on this one. 

R8- Janet's other

This is truly the experimental quilt, since I have chopped up an earlier piece to make it.  That has greatly limited my design opportunities. I love the colors, but the thing has lacked any kind of focus.  For round 8, I appliquéd a flamingo from the little bit of left over print material.  I think it helps to tie some of the other pieces together.  Unlike my other SAHR, this one had no preconceived ideas so I'm just winging it.  This step made me like it better, though. I am having fun with these.  Thanks Kate.

R8- Janet's Prairie

For Round 8, I  appliquéd the wheat stalk.  I've known I wanted this element since almost the beginning.    I didn't want to do too much, since we have several rounds left, but the shape is established..  I will do more with it, at least in the quilting if not before.  It's a good thing that I have to wait, because it gives me time to really think and analyze each step. I'm loving this SAHR.  Thanks Kate.

Rd 8: Cheryll

I appliqued a Snowman TeaPot as my round 8 embellishment. I didn't want to do too much as Kate has suggested there will be more LaTeR.
But I like the way it's coming together now.
Hope everyone is enjoying this sahr and a big THaNkS to Kate for organising.

Just a little figure - someone to climb the hill to the house! (and to remind me of the 30 figures that I'm going to sew on a school wall hanging later!).

Round 8!

Sorry, forgot to post this yesterday, what with one thing and another...

This month's step is quite simple (or it could be complex if you want it to be) -

Applique and/or embroider something on your top.

This can be as simple or as elaborate as you like, though be warned, there will be some similar steps in future months, so you may not want to do too much this month!
