Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Appliqué is Sneaking In

I’m not sure what is going on.  Yes, that’s Roxanne’s Glue-Baste-It which is used in appliqué.  This afternoon I went out shopping specifically to buy the product.  Three or four weeks ago, I picked out some fabrics for Lillebet’s Garden, a gorgeous pattern by Beth Ferrier.

Then there’s the kit I bought in 2008 — Tulips for Beginners — another quilt with both piecing and applique.

Then of course there are those Dresden Plates I finally finished, not to mention all the letters for the Crossword Puzzle quilt I’m working on.  I thought my ‘mantra’ was “I don’t do appliqué”.  In fact I blogged about it in 2009.

If my own projects are enough, I found this in the mail when I got home from the retreat earlier this week:

It’s block #107 from Volume 2 of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks.  Diane Harris made it and it’s called Paisley Punch.  Who knows what I’m going to do with this block. Whatever I do, it will push me outside of my comfort zone which is occasionally  good thing.

3 Thoughts on “Appliqué is Sneaking In

  1. You won one of the new blocks from Volume two? I got the 1st block in the magazine. I love applique, esp on road trips.

  2. I made a paisley block too! Whats the special occasion for yours?? Careful about fabric leaping into your arms–sometimes the bolts are heavy and they want to wrap around your neck like a crying 3 year old!
