After I posted my UFO update yesterday I realized that I had not given an applique update in a while and I've actually made a bit of progress on this. We've been watching a few series on Amazon Prime so I've had a bit of hand sewing time.
I started in the middle and am working my way to each end. I think the last update included the red blossom. The Gold and blue ones finished out half of the first border!
After I finished that side I came back to the center, stitched the peach floral blossom and added the center dot.
Now I have 6 of 44 blossoms of the border done and that means I'm 13.6% done. I've made it into double digits!
It might be time for a celebration drink!
I even have the vine for the next blossom done so I'm moving right along.
This is how I fold up the border on each side of the blossom that I'm stitching. It helps to keep the long border under control. Don't look too closely at my stitching on the back. My only concern is that I don't have any loose ends showing under the white.
I'm getting so close to finishing the first border that I have some extra motivation....once I get over the cold that my dearest husband gave me.

It is looking great. Good move with carefully securing those ends on the back. I will try to remember that if I ever do hand applique on a quilt.

The stitching looks great and you are making wonderful progress. I am using a faux blanket stitch on my t-shirt quilt. With the weight of the t-shirts I can't get regular blanket stitching to lay flat so I back stitch around the edge of the shirt, then go back and add the perpendicular stitches. It pretty much looks like a blanket stitch.
