Ok, so this one was fairly easy….Cut out the shape (I use the freezer paper method) and hand applique onto the background fabric – done!

The tricky part are the curves, but with a little attention to detail it can be done fairly easily.

The lines and writing that you see on this block was done with a “gel” fabric pen.  You can write/draw on fabric with it, and then when you place a hot iron on it, the lines disappear.  This works well when you write on the fabric with a light hand; when being a bit more heavy handed, the pen has a tendency to “scar” the fabric.  I mainly use it to draw boundaries (like I did on this block); sometimes I use it to draw lines to quilt over.

This was block # 44:
