New Giveaway @ Applique Thursday 1/3/13

Here's my completed applique block from 1997.  I added a kitty on the right, but he doesn't stand out very well in real life.  Should I outline him in black?  So I did do a little applique to finish this off.  I added six flower groups, cat and leaf.  It needs to be quilted now.  I feel bad I didn't work on my other two applique blocks - but nothing was prepped on them and I couldn't stand for very long. And why didn't I add some applique to my goals at Getting it Done?  Fortunately, there is a little bit of applique on those BOM blocks. 

Back to reducing my quilt book shelf.  In celebrating the New Year and because this is the first Applique Thursday of the year, I'm giving away a great applique patten package.

I linked, I commented, and I posted about your giveaway. Angie you are giving away such wonderful books. That's almost as hard as cutting into new cherished fabrics.

Feel better!

a lovely wall hanging! no outlining ... the cat will stand out more with the quilting, won't it? love the added flowers! i'm still new enough to quilting that i'm still adding to my library. thanx for the chance to win your book.
Your block looks lovely! Yes, I would do some stitching on the kitty to make it stand out more - it's too cute to fade into the background, although kitties sure do like to hide and pounce =^..^=

I'm hoping to put together a post today and if so I will link up. That's a wonderful book, and I'd love to win it!!!

Happy New Year!!!

I love your block! How about a bow on the kitten to make him stand out? I would love to win your book because I'm learning to applique as a change to making pieced blocks.
