Sisters Choice Applique

Looky here! I've been working some more on my applique - this block is starting to really take shape now. I predict that I'll be finished it this evening. Then I'll get busy with the applique'd setting triangles. I've had to force myself to work on this project, but now that it's taking shape I'm more inspired to work at it.

I need to have the whole quilt finished and the directions written by 2 October, so I will really start getting a move on now. It's due to go into an issue of Australian Patchwork and Quilting that goes on sale in February next year.

In not so good news - our fave football team lost the final yesterday. It was very hard to watch. They led most of the game, and in the last minute a goal was kicked that put them behind by three points and then it was all over. It's sad - especially for die hard fans - but in a way I'm glad I won't have to stress and get nervous over the three remaining finals. There's always next year.

Hope you're having a great weekend - I'm getting ready to do some chores ... and then I'm settling in for some more applique!

I'm the same way Tazzie, I lose steam and then pick it up again during a project. Right now, I'm having to push myself to assemble the blocks for my string hearts but I know once that's done I'll love the project again.

I love these leaves.

Your leaves block is one of the prettiest applique pieces I've ever seen. Makes me want to give applique a try again.

Beautiful colors in that block. :)

I'm finally catching up on my blog reading today... How's Amy doing from her injuries? Was the nose broken after all?

The Etsy store is a cool idea... do they get an etsy bitsy percentage of every thing you sell thru the site?
