More applique ...

This project is starting to take shape now ... and from this point on is going to be kind of slow going.

I'm appliqueing the border pieces, the one in the foreground is about two thirds done. I wanted to cut out all the larger melon shapes before I set to cutting out all the smaller leaves for the middle block, just to make sure I had enough larger pieces to go round. I'm working with scraps of fabric now - all the larger pieces have been used in the sisters choice blocks. (you can just see them all there in the background)

So you can imagine where I'm heading ... the centre block will have a narrow dark border, then the setting triangles will be appliqued in a similar way to the centre block. Then another narrow dark border, followed by the sisters choice blocks. Another dark border, and then a leafy fabric for the final border from one of the Jo Morton ranges.

Hi Tazzie, you seem a superlady to me. How can you do so many things together and be so fast? I admire you!^^ By the way, I live in the Hills.

This quilt is going to be absolutely spectacular. And reminds me, again, why I want to learn how to actually do applique that doesn't only involve fusible webb. Someday.

I am drinking myself up on coffee here so I can sew a lot today ;-)

OK...stop now...you are making me too amazed wondering how you continue to get so much done and be so creative. Is this a commissioned quilt or one for your competition entry, or just for fun??

It is gorgeous, and you know I love all those repro colors!!

Looks good, Tazzie. One question, though - do you know of some secret stash of time somewhere that the rest of us aren't aware of? :)
