Monday Goals

Monday, October 11, 2010
Busy week planned here.  One goal--

  1. Finish binding the pink/yellow quilt
   
I love applique.  I suck at doing applique!  But, as my friend Henrietta says, I have "dug my German toes in" and persist in trying.   I dedicate this block to Lillian--I know she does beautiful applique.  



Yes, I know there are some lumps and bumps.  hehe  Gives it character!  This was done using a glue stick.   I wanted to make these for my red and white swap.  I will practice one more out of some scraps--I put these in a pile and call them "Jay's blocks".  Really--it's just a name--I know Jay doesn't WANT any blocks!

Wash your mouth with soap, you used the 'A' word.

Actually it is quite pretty but rather you than me.

I am not an applique fan either.... so it must be like the cat who goes to the person who doesn't like cats that I really find myself attracted to designs that need applique!!?! Ahhhhhh!!! So, lets both bite the fusible web and make this art form our friend...... or at least one that we can visit once in awhile without feeling scared!
(I thought your blk looked fine by the way!! Aren't pictures wounderful!!)
