Applique Thursday Giveaway 9/13/12

Tomorrow is my busy Thursday for the month, so I'm posting this early.  And I'll pick a winner tomorrow as the giveway ends near midnight tonight.  Alas, not much time to work on anything other than St. Ann's, so no progress on my two applique blocks, but I did get my guild block done which will be handed in next Tuesday, and yes, it has applique.  Here is my BOM block - Benedict Castle - one of Riverside's landmarks:

It still needs to sewn down and  a little embroidery.  I'll be using it as part of my demo on raw applique.

The giveaway book this week does have some very nice applique in it.  I like that each project teaches the reader a different skill.  I've used it several times but on projects I had ongoing, not on the ones offered.

So, who wants it? To win this copy, all you need to do is comment or link to have a chance for it to be yours. Or do both and have two chances. Submissions end Wednesday night. Use the blue link below the photo.   And remember, it doesn't have to be applique - I love all sorts of eye candy.

I know I have lost it thinking it was already Thursday. Now I can't get my post to post....giggle. I'm trying again.

Your Castle is wonderful.

Angie your castle is wonderful. Connie was working on hers last night at our Thursday night Quilty Girlfriends gathering. I have not done any of the Riverside blocks yet. Trying to finish up some UFOs. That in itself is the work of a lifetime.

Some projects take longer than others but so worth it when they are done!
