Positive thinking is what we've needed this year. And the need has become greater with every day. I reset some of the electric socket string blocks with a medallion of tulips. It's a triple scoop ice cream cone - strings, medallion, and tulips. So those circles must be the cherries on top.
Deliberately angled strings made a wild top, named by QuiltDivaJulie, but it seemed like one was enough. However, there were almost two more piles of these blocks. So, like kawandi, I started at the outside and worked my way in. One nice thing about applique is that it's easily scalable. Just enlarge or shrink the design to fit the needed space.
