Ta Da!! Finally A Row Completed

I do love applique!  And I've found myself doing quite a bit of it lately.

Do you remember this quilt? 

I have finally completed the first three blocks.

Block One

Block Two

Block Three

The first row pieced together.  I love how the blocks work with the pieced sashing!  It gives the illusion that it was a lot of work, but it was quite simple.

Some close-ups:

I have more blocks ready for applique, ready to take with me whereever I need to go.  But what next?!

I've been eyeing my Baltimore Halloween BOM quilt that I had gotten about a year ago.

And I have yet to start on it - I'll just take it out from time to time and "uhh" and "ahh" over it!  But I might give it a try.  I have found a tutorial for appliquing using Elmer's glue sticks.  I think it will work with the small applique pieces that is used in this quilt.

And now... off to more applique!! : )

  1. I absolutely love to applique. Your blocks are gorgeous. I can't want to get more to work on. I also love to hand piece and hand quilt, although I have been machine piecing otherwise I'd never get anything done!
