A Little Applique'


Twelve...all twelve blocks are finished for my A Tisket, A Tasket quilt...thanks so much Anne!!! I'm hoping to add the final row and borders this weekend.


This darling block is one of my favorites...the vintage pink rick rack in the basket came from Stephanie and seemed to be absolutely perfect.


Now I can start on Anne's new block of the month...Snowbound--well, as soon as Rural Jardin is available that is...
Have a wonderful day...hope you get to sew!

Your block is so cute! I have only finished the first three but I have all 12 fused. I think I get points for effort right. :-)

Rachel said...

It's lovely! I think the December block was my favourite, too. Will you show us all twelve together? How are you going to finish it? So many questions...

I'm still trying to decide what fabric to use for the Snowbound blocks. Such a hard decision. I have a list of 4 possibilities, but I think I'd have to see them in person to pick one.

This is so much fun!

Gari said...

I am so jealous. I have all the applique done on mine but still need to do the embroidery: hand embroidery is something I have not done for many years. Are you sashing it with that blue and white gingham?
