I Have Started


I have had my pattern and fabric for several weeks and then stalled...hand or machine applique. I like to do both. Finally, after weighing several time factors and current hand applique projects I decided to do my Roseville Album with machine applique. I like to use a blanket stitch to applique and I already had threads to match most of the beautiful Kaffe Fassett fabrics. So I started in the middle of the quilt with the fruit compote block. I didn't vary too much on fabric choices from the pattern, but I will get braver with these bright fun fabrics as I go. I have enjoyed every bodies posts and have learned a lot from this blog.
Happy Stitching,
Cheri

  7. I love the fabric for the big fruit and the urn looks wonderful. In fact it all looks great but those are the parts that I love.

  8. You're off to a great start! Your stitching is very nice, and something I'm not comfortable with myself. Beautiful fussy cutting. It's going to be fun to watch your progress. :)
