I'm also working on another 2 fabric applique quilt, Judy Garden's Dutch Treat. We are doing these blocks in my Yahoo group, Applique Boutique, as a block-a-week activity. Every Monday 2 blocks are assigned and are due by Sunday. This is a good way to challenge us and keep us motivated to get our blocks done. We are all enjoying stitching these little blocks. Here are the two blocks I completed this week:
As you may or may not know, I am a big fan of Kim McLean's patterns. Every once in awhile I can't help myself and have to check out Glorious Applique to see what's new in both Kaffe Fassett fabrics and Kim's patterns. Even though it is not a new pattern, I am really drawn to Stars and Sprigs mainly because it is a mix of both piecing and applique. Well, this past week I broke down and purchased the pattern and so far have finished 3 star blocks and 1 applique block:
I'm having fun coordinating Kaffe Fassett's beautiful fabrics for the stars and sprigs and while I probably should be working on others things right now in my sewing studio, I just can't resist making a star or two every day!
Until next time . . .
