Applique Thursday 3/28/13

Vroom - that's how the week went, and here we are at Thursday again.  And no applique to show for it but this:

Cut out the pieces to form my placement pattern. Next is to trace all those pieces onto steam a seam 2 that will be fused to the back of the fabrics I choose.
Here is the one block I was able to make for my DGD's quilt - 19 to go. So I have officially reached one of my goals for March - starting this quilt.  I'm going to count this as a finish at Crazy Mom Quilts considering what a crazy month March was for me as far as quilting.
And now for the giveaway. Our winner for last week was Sue Dario.  Congratulations, Sue! picked your number. I've sent Sue an email.
This coming week's giveaway is again an applique book.  I've just reached the end of my bug days:

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. And for extra chances, tell your friends about this giveaway. If they comment or link and mention you in their comment, you'll automatically get another entry in this giveaway. Submissions end Wednesday night. Use the blue link below. And remember, it doesn't have to be applique (that you share that is) - all sorts of eye candy is eligible and very welcome - even projects you finish a while ago - it'll all be new to me.

I'm linking over to Pat Sloan's blog for Show and Tell .  Her posts are always so interesting.
And I'm also  linking over at Carrie's A Passion for Applique as I did reach one goal this month even though it wasn't a finish - sigh.


  1. Cutting out all those piece is applique enough!.....grin. Cute block for DGD!

  2. Hola, hermosas mariposas, ya lleve a mi blog, espero haberlo hecho bien, cariños

  3. Beautiful butterflies!
    Thank you!

  4. I love that block full of all those plaids. Well done. Maybe April we will see the 19 blocks. :0)
    Please don't enter me in the giveaway. It is a beautiful pattern but I am not sure I would ever make it.

  5. From what I can see of your pieces, that's going to make a wonderful applique piece. I love that you used plaids, gingham and the pinwheel in your 9 patches. I NEVER thought of that, and it would be such a great way to use some small donated blocks. Thank you for that idea!

  6. I love what you are working on. Hugs
