Applique Thursday 8/11/11

Okay, it's another Applique Thursday, and I have a giveaway for you!  You know how I love applique, want to look at applique and want to make more applique, so the book on left can be yours so you can do or try applique (this is the easiest kind - fusible applique).  There are 10 great poster quilts in this title -six I'd like to make, but I'm giving it away (yes, I have another copy-hehe).  All you have to do is add your link below to a blog post that has some applique on it.  Not the link to your general blog, a blog post with applique [If you're not sure how, go to my tab above for Applique Thursdays,and you'll find some directions].  Now it can be one you're making, one you've done a while ago, one you've dreamed of making. If you don't have a blog add a link to a photo of some applique. So even non-bloggers and non-wanna-be appliquers can receive this book.  It's a great book.  Let's have some eye candy!   I'll pick a winner next wednesday.  Hope you want to play.

Now here's is what I've been working on.  This is a Dear Jane block, M-7,  Junko's Rose Garden.  I wonder if you can notice what's different about it.I used reverse applique for the large piece in the middle and then machine appliqued the 8 leaf like pieces.  It went together faster than I expected.


Below, I photographed it on point and I'm pretty sure I have seen a whole quilt made out of this block, but can't remember the name.  Does anybody know what it is?  For some reason, reel comes to my mind, but don't think that's all of it.

Found it in EQ7 and it is called Reel. Your memory is good.

I just posted up my picture of a past applique piece I did. It's a wall hanging of a snow woman for a swap I was in. The person liked purples so I did it in her colors. The snowflakes are actually very small buttons with the larger corner ones being some jewelry pieces that I used.

Not really my first attempt to applique, just my first with granddaughter. I see some stressful and tedious times ahead. But I am looking forward to it. :)

I did something wrong. Is there a way to fix it? I linked to a pic thats on my blog, but its not the blog like (does that make sense?)

Anyway, I have just learned applique and am not ready to show it, but I posted a pic of the applique I want to do (the Rose of Sharon. I hope thats good for the drawing cause I really want to win this book!

Here's an applique pattern I started years ago as a vest for my step dad. It got stuffed in a box for a move and I've not been able to find it to finish it! Thinking of buying the pattern and starting over.

I have been miserably unsuccessful at appliqué so far, but I've linked up just the same.

I don't have a blog, so it took me a few tries to post a photo that I had uploaded to flickr. It's an applique block of Tom Sawyer and his friend whitewashing the fence. I made the block for a once-a-year theme quilt ("Mark Twain" in 2010) which is raffled for a local scholarship. I like your Thursday Applique and will subscribe to your feed today. Thanks!

I have never made a hand applique but hope to one day, I just need to get up the courage to just do it.
