Finally I have done some real applique. I spent every spare minute of my weekend prepping blocks and appliquing. In fact, I was so busy doing it that my daughter said, "You always spend all your time quilting - you never do ANYTHING with us!" Yes she is a drama queen. So I explained to her that this is the first real quilting I've done since we moved into this house last June! And also that doing something I love, like quilting, makes me happy which makes me a nicer Mommy.
I have prepped 5 blocks now, and finished one, which I'll show you here, and then....drum roll....I am going to do a tutorial on how to prep for needleturn applique! So watch for that later today.
These blocks are all done on the felt I made a few weeks back, and it has been a dream to work with! And it feels so good to get back in the applique groove!
