Applique Thursdays 10/13/11

Sorry for the delay, but I just got home from two days of round the clock meetings, events, babysitting and helping mom with legal matter. I feel as if I've been run over by a cement truck. I wanted to do it Tuesday night but never had a chance with getting ready for Wednesday.  So here is my completed owl and the linky button.  I was going to use invisible thread, but never had a chance to go to JoAnn's and buy some. My mom said - it is so colorful, go ahead and use several threads, and so I did.  I almost got into trouble as I squared up the block to 8 1/2" before I appliqued it.  Fortunately, the stitching didn't make it smaller this time.  Pheww!

I hope you all still feel like sharing.  Would love to see your present, past or future ideas for applique.

  3. I just got a new pattern called Link to the 30s and it is a combination of piecing and applique. I have to applique like 638 circles onto a Double Wedding Ring quilt.. and then some orange peel shapes in addition.. yay. It turns out to be beautiful though. I have to make up some templates soon..but I am in love with this pattern. I dunno, do I start yet another quilt and have so many in progress?? YEP! I can't help myself!!
