I am designing some applique for my log cabin basket quilt. There is a lot of blank space and I think it needs some applique. I fell in love with the applique in a book called Elegant Quilts, Country Charm by Leonie Bateman and Dierdre Bond-Abel. So I used several flowers and leaves from the book to begin adding applique. I have one side pinned down. Need to make more leaves and vine. Then I will do a vine heading up the left border. I have plans for the right bottom corner. Since I don't have a pattern to trace to place the applique, it is a bit challenging for me. I also don't want to permantly add the washout marker so I am planning on getting everything down that is under and removing the lines before I iron on the flowers and leaves. I really respect the work designers do when preparing patterns. Here is what I have done so far:
I have also gotten two more blocks made on my civil war quilt. Today, I go to the dentist to get some oral surgery done. I'm hoping it will fix a problem I have been having. From my past experiences, I know I will be sleeping the rest of the day and still be able to go to sleep at night. Have a great day. Check out what others are doing at Patchwork Times.
