This latest project is also an appliqué in the making. I have had this fabric for years, and am happy to finally use it. I was not sure what to do with the log cabins blocks. I came upon a pattern that uses appliqué with the blocks (book: Creative Log Cabin Quilting). I like to leave the ends of my applique stems loose when I am "ad libbing" the layout. When I lay my flowers and stems, I have some wiggle room in which to lay my pieces without having to un-sew.

2018 is here! This is a post from January 2017. Two of these quilts have been completed. I have added quite a few tops to this pile in 2017.
This is my first completion of 2018. I took a "hawaiian bag" class from Common Threads Quilt Guild. This will come in handy for my upcoming trip to Road to California Quilt Show. This bag can hold alot of fabric buys!

We also included a challenge to finish any quilt older than 5 years. I have had this kit since 2012. It is hand appliqué.
This was my traveling theme. Tea towels with retro campers! Quick and easy.

I made another Baby Quilt for a Great Nephew due in December. I think I will be making more, my sister said her son and DIL plan to have more children. Love how our family keeps growing!
I also had fun visiting with family. We went to Superior Dairy Ice Cream, our favorite place to visit when my Brother is here. In the picture is my brother Kevin, me, Sis in law Cheryle, and cousin Lynn.
