Not very much progress

to show you today. Just little bits of this

trying to finish the third panel, but it's busy time here so not much head space for sewing. Hopefully I will finish it this week so i can move to a corner block which will be a bit more interesting to sew.

And little bits of that

again not much. I pick this up when I haven't got any pieces for Sallie Ann prepped and ready to go. Gives me a great colour hit which is always welcome.

Also a bit more of this

Just over half way there - I'm looking forward to getting on to the final star borders. You can also see a sneak peek of what I am planning in the background.

And finally a bit of this

Block 2 arrived this week with the threads that I forgot to order for block 1. So I have started block 1

It is very different than the applique I am used to. I hope it's going OK.

Hopefully the little bits of this and that will add up to something substantial in the not too distant future.

Happy sewing

I'm wondering what you're tracing "Auntie's Green" from. Is there a pattern available for the whole of "Auntie's Green"? I've found a pattern in APQ magazines from years ago for the centre part. It's on my "to do" list too!

I've already started Auntie Green
from the APQ magazine. Would love to find a pattern for the next floral border.

What beautiful applique Deb..always inspiring! I am sure that all of a sudden you will have lots finished!

Wool applique is fun and the needle just glides. I admire Sue's work but her BOM's are too expensive for my budget. Check out Sharon B's Pintangle for embellishment ideas. She is an Australian crazy quilter and stitcher extraordinaire and she has a ton of tutorials and demos on her site. Cheers!

Oh my gosh, I love all of your projects! They are different enough to keep the hand stitching fun and interesting.

Miriam said...
