Appliqué Update Thursday



All that football last weekend enabled me to finish the first block of my Civil War Bride Quilt. (Go Pack!)

A couple of the leaves on the edges aren't stitched down because they will overlap the next block after I get them all sewn together (grin).

Although, I might not be finished with this because I'm thinking that the flowers really need some embroidered stamens....
And I made some pretty good progress on the ostriches -- one is finished and the other is almost finished.  This block is going a lot quicker than the first one did.

How nice!!! Isn't applique just the most relaxing to do! And portable! Look forward to seeing this entire quilt!

Just gorgeous. Let me say again how much I love that dark blue background, so original and so effective.

At this rate you'll be done in about 3 years.... I think it needs some embroidery too, but then again quilting will also give it some dimention.

I agree on the embroidery idea. Will look forward to seeing your progress. Oh, and Go Bills too - they are winning for the first time in many, many, many years. I, along with all of western New York, am going to enjoy it while it lasts. :)
