Batchelor Buttons

Ever since seeing all of the beautiful needle turned applique at the Quit Odyssey quilt show I have been thinking that I should at least give it a try. This Dear Jane block, B-1 Batchelor Buttons, is my first attempt at needle turn applique. I don't think it came out too bad, except for that one circle that is a little flat on one side, but as the saying goes...finished is better than perfect!

There you go Susan, already putting your Quilt Odyssey observations to good use! As for your *one* circle having a bit of a flat side ~ my granddaughter and I apply the rule that "only God is Perfect and we don't compete with that", so if we don't have an actual *whoops* we make one ~ could be a circle with a flat side, or a block that is turned wrong, but we quilt to enjoy not to be perfect!! You can enjoy your quilting, it is looking good. Keep on quilting!
