I experimented with several ideas for applique around the Farmer’s Fancy block, one of my favorites. One of my simplest ideas turned out best. I traced the top middle triangle in the outer ring of the circle of the center block (which I took from BlockBase), as an appliqué shape, and the center circle as well. I first used the Wreathmaker tool to make a small flower of six triangles with the circle in the center. Then I used the Wreathmaker again to make a ring of 12 flowers around the center block.
