Applique Thursday 11/10/11 and a Giveaway!

Hello, this is late.  I try to post early in the morning, but today I got ready for our St. Anne's group meeting and didn't even turn on the computer until 3pm PDT.  And have I had time to applique?  Nope!
But here is the next block I will be working on - another of the Jubilee Album Series quilt.  This one is called Tall Tulips.  I hope to start working on it soon! Like tomorrow - even if it's just cutting out the 15" muslim block I need to trace the pattern on the back.

Now for the giveaway! To one lucky person, I'm giving a copy of Terrific Table Toppers with Patrick Lose.  Lots of applique here!


Okay, here’s how it works:
For one chance to win you can comment on this post and tell me something about your applique adventures. For a second chance to win, become a follower and leave another comment here saying so. If you’re already a follower, just leave a comment telling me that. A third chance to win is to sign up to receive an email when I add a post to the blog – that’s on my left sidebar. And a fourth chance to win is to add a link of a post on your blog or photo group of a project that has applique – this can be a past, present or future project –even a book you like that has applique. I like to look at applique so much you get two chances to win for this one. I’ll just add one for you after I visit your post.  Every comment is an entry, so you have a total of five chances to win!  I will draw a winner, using a random number generator on Wednesday and announce next thursday.
Good Luck!

Oh dear, my applique work has been minimal. I've appliqued a silhouetted lighthouse against a strip background. I also appliqued a sihouetted firefighter in full gear climbing over large rubble in front of a large flag background for 9/11 - except he wound up looking more like a pregnant Statue of Liberty lol. Thanks for a chance to win some help! VermontPines@aol.com

I love applique the best. My favorite part is that I can do it while I watch television with my family.

I love to look at applique. I would love to get better at it. I guess that means I have to do more of it. I do have a big applique project designed, I just have to select fabrics and get started. It will be a very long term project.

I have a love/hate with applique...I love the look but get frustrated when my stitches aren't all I hope for. At the moment, I have four applique projects going...two Baltimores, one music quilt and a applique and nine patch that actually goes back to the eighties...guess I better pull that one to the front of the list!

I love to applique with fusible and machine embroidery.I'm not so good with hand turning embroidery-not much patience for that! Looks like a great book, Thanks for the chance!
Marilyn said…
I love applique and that is how I started with quilting - it was some years before I did a pieced quilt. I always enjoy the creativity of applique, especially when designing my own "pictures".

About 40 years ago my first piece of applique work was an English design by "Stitchcraft" magazine. It was a design of sea creatures which I completed in shades of oranges and blues and is on a woven beige mix background fabric and had embroidery as well. It is still on show in my upstairs hall.

I don't do too much applique. I've made four cute chicken blocks for a wallhanging, and just recently made six Christmas stockings, each with some applique.
