Playing Catchup

Posted by Strlady at 5:00 AM
A few weekends ago I went to retreat with the gals from the Modern Quilt Guild. They are always good company and inspiring.

While there I did make a dent on my Kim Diehl project. I actually finished all the applique! Yeah me!


I glued all the big pieces down


Then stitched with the tiny zig zag and some monofilament thread.


Then I added the darn berries... all 60 of them...


And I was able to call the applique done and start on my borders.


The first one is sewn on and I'm happy with it, but this second one is definitely not convincing me so I put it aside until I could get my hands on the new Diehl line for Henry Glass. I just got it a few days ago, so I'll be able to get back to this soon.

I drew a name via the random generator for the giveaway of the Laundry Basket goodies.


The goodies go to "one line lane"...


I hoping to hear from you soon to get this prize on it's way... Check your email.

Last but not least.
A big thank you to everyone that made a donation to Bands for Brad. The event itself was a great success. It's not too late to make a donation, the link to the donation page will remain up until the end of the month.

Stay tuned for a glimpse of what I did over the weekend!

What an incredible applique piece, especially those darn berries. I love the first border, but I'm thinking maybe a more "solid" looking second border would make the piece pop. Beautiful work! XOXO

I have all of KD's books and I just love your topper! I haven't made any of her patterns yet... but would love to. How is it working with monofilament?

Sandy, you must be over the moon thrilled with your appliqué project. It's beautiful and I just love it! Kim designs fabric, I didn't know that! I need to be on the lookout for some. That's part of what makes her projects so amazing, her fabric choices.

Why did you go with a small zig zag stitch instead of a blanket stitch?
