Applique Thursday and a Giveaway

Got a little bit done on my Whimsical applique block:
It wouldn't have been so difficult if I'd done as I usually do and thrown the fabric for the flower on the background and seen if the dots showed.  They did, but I didn't find this out until I had already fused and cut out all the petals!  So I had to sandwich some more yellow and do them all over.  Oh well - more fusible scraps thrown into my bag.

Thanks to all who shared their eye candy.  It was so much fun reading about it on your blogs and seeing more in previous post, too.  This week we have another book giveaway.  This one is Simply Landscapes by Judy Sisneros.  You could easily add applique elements to any of her quilts.
I'm thinking you'll really like this one:
 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 finished a while ago - it's all new to me.

Nice giveaway gift! I haven't done much in the way of applique in my 30+ years of quilting. Don't know why, but you have renewed my interest in it. Thank you!

That book looks lovely. You share such a treasure trove with us. Thanks, as always, for the reminder that even a little bit of progress counts, as we watch your beginnings turn into full-bloom blocks and quilts.

I love landscapes. They are quite a challenge. The book looks great.

Sorry my link is just an image. I thought it would go to flickr. I haven't written a post about this project. Hopefully this link will go to my photo stream:
