Happy Friday everyone! I have all my triangles cut for a very Special Baby Quilt I am making for my Best Friend's daughter. The new mom wants greys and whites, so I tried to stay true to what she wanted and have picked oranges, greens, greys, yellows and whites. More pics to follow: But this is what I am working on this weekend:

Hi everyone, Last night I tried back basting two of the leaves on my When the Cold Wind Blows Block... and I have to say the leaves laid nicely down and in place...hmmm might start using this method, I really liked the results

Good morning lovely bloggers, as u know I love hand stitching I really do , I would like to ask all of u that hand appliqué...what is your favorite method. Do u use freezer paper, or needle turn as u go-which is the current wAy I do it, do u use glue? Or.. Have u ever done the underneath or back basting method of appliqué. Do u use a vinyl overlay? Or do u just eyeball it? My last block I am trying to do does not look anything like the pattern so I am going to draw a vinyl overlay to see if I can get it more precise. I m not a perfectionist but something about this last block bothers me. See previous post and u will see what I mean.... So tell me if u have a chance what is your favorite way?. Many happy hugs Mary

Well, still stitching the 3td block...you can see it is a work in progress! A lot more to do, but didn't want you all to think I was slacking, even though the temps here are in the upper 80's and I am getting sooo excited for Summer...
