Not Giving Up...

...Yet! Here is my progress on my applique blocks. You can see who I am copying:) here.



The first day I loved doing applique! The 2nd day I hated everything about it but I kept at it! I am really enjoying the process now. My blocks are nowhere near even close to perfect. My points arent even what you would call pointy;) but I am liking how they are turning out and I feel more confident. I guess, like most things with sewing, it takes practice, practice and more practice!


2 of my favorite blocks.




I found this great tutorial. It helped alot. I love the smell of starch..and its so cheap!




I also made these blocks to send off to Bren. To help out a sweet girl.



I just love a 9-patch! Don't you?

Yeah!! A yellow block! I haven't gotten one of those yet! They both look wonderful and will be perfect in the raffle quilt. You are a doll!!!
I have never done the starch method of applique. I always do needle turn, but this method looks worth trying! Oh...and I LOVE hand applique, unless I am appliqueing down an acorn with cap the size of a pea!
