appliqué update

Well, I didn't get much work done on my appliqué project last week, because I drove to Calgary to help my son and soon to be daughter in law with wedding plans.
But here is where it is so far...

I took my finished blocks into the quilt guild meeting to show Dorothy...my "advisor"...and got a nod of approval! Yes, I must be doing ok!!

This will be a long term project, but nice to have something to take along in a suitcase. The finished quilt top should look like this....except the FMQ will likely not be as impressive LOL.

So that is my work in progress...and it will continue to be in progress for a long time to come LOL

and Lee's at Freshly Pieced..

  3. Beautiful block! I just love applique but don't do it as often as I'd like! It's so relaxing, well, for the most part! Are you doing this needle-turn?
