This blog is dedicated to applique. Glorious applique!!! The focus here will be hand applique, but there is room for machine applique too. Kim McLean is the designer whose patterns and quilts we will be working on together. Are you ready?! Let's SEW!!!
Here is the top panel of my Flower Pots quilt. I have been busy putting the top together and will post it soon. Today I had a bit of a mishap while trimming the panels. I was trimming the final borders of appliqued circles and realized that on one of the borders it was not straight and some of the circles were too close to the edge on one side. Fortunately it could be fixed by removing the circles and shifting them about 3/8 in but it was pretty frustrating. I think trimming down the applique blocks is my least part of quilting. So scary after all that work, one wrong move and disaster. Anyway, that slowed down my final assembly by several hours but I still love the quilt and all is well now.
