A New Book

I haven't bought a new quilt book in a while
(I have too many already!),
but while looking in a LQS I found this one.


There is something about small quilts that just draws me in,
so I had to look at this book....
and then it was purchased and in my bag.

Can you see the pages I've marked already?
I have many dreams of making many small quilts from this book!

The other day I needed something relatively easy
after making the T-shirt quilt and after my problems with the
mystery blocks for my quilt group quilt.

And Applique!
I haven't done any applique in a bit.

So
The fabrics were chosen....


The pattern pieces were traced onto freezer paper...

The sewing and stitching were done...

I need to work on the lower left side a bit, I think!

This applique was so relaxing and fun to do.

Now for the quilting.
Do I hand quilt it or machine quilt it?
Decisions, decisions...


Happy Friday!

This is so cute. It would take some time to make a large one like that but I would like it.

Love that you used a print for the background and repeated it in the border. I'm also a fan of applique.
