Back on the Applique train!

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!
Before... After...

That looks beautiful,I can't wait for the tutorial. That's something I've always wanted to do more of but never seem to get it right.
