A Week of Appliqué

Progress! That is a good word for this past week!

This week the top and bottom sections of  appliqué vines, flowers, and leaves was completed!

Vines pinned in place and then blanket stitched. Flowers, leaves and buds added after stitching vines.

Oops, I did not have enough of the green bud bits.

So I got busy making more little 1″ green pieces for buds.

Work in progress – buds, flowers, leaves pinned in place ready to machine stitch.

Stitching complete! Sections are now sandwiched waiting for quilting.

Quilting these two sections starts today! Then they will be attached to quilt using Pauline Rogers Quilt As You Go method. If all goes well with completing these 2 sections, the next step in making this quilt is creating a clam shell border.

Last Week’s To-Do List:

  1. Applique!  ✔️  Applique is completed! The 2 sections are sandwiched!

This Week’s To-Do List:

  1. Quilt the two appliqué sections.
  2. Sew quilted sections to the quilt center.
  3. If there is time start Clam Shell Border.

    Hi Sharon! Wow, those little itty bitty buds are small but they really make the piece come to life. I’ll bet those are fun to buttonhole. I can’t believe you got this whole thing to the finished stage and ready for quilting. WOWEE! Great job. And thanks so much for linking up this week. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Such a pretty project. I love your applique.

    Your appliqué is just stunning, Sharon! This post reminds me that I need to pin baste some more leaves to a block so I have something to needle turn while watching TV. But my project is fall colors that are NOT where my heart is right now, so I’m coveting your Spring blues and greens… Maybe I should have multiple appliqué projects going to work on in different seasons — but then I’d never finish ANY of them! :-)

    Your quilt is so pretty! Love how it all looks together.

    You are SO much faster at appliqué than I am – and it isn’t because I haven’t done a ton of it. I’m just slow at that and hand embroidery. It’s a good thing I like both. =)
