Do you love applique?

Well, if you do, you will not want to miss out on this opportunity. Over at One Piece at a Time ,Erin has so generously provided her patterns as free download-able PDFs for a beautiful block of the month applique quilt, but you will need to hurry as they will only be available till January 5th.... you can find all the info about this quilt and the downloads here
I am still pretty new to applique so I can use all the practice I can get.......I did a quarter of one of the blocks just to see how it would look.For this, I used the Invisafil threads. I LOVE them for hand applique. They are a fine, 100wt polyester.... your stitches will just disappear!

Thanks for the lead on the free Applique BOM. It's really nice. I downloaded them. If you happen to come across any nice leaves for applique, will you let me know. I'm doing a fall quilt, and need leaves for a vine border that I'm doing..

I didn't realize that 100wt poly was available. I'm using Aurifil 50wt and have 100wt silk in neutral too.

Wow, thanks for sharing the info about the beautiful applique quilt. I'm just a beginner still and this looks like a great project to learn some skills on (once I finish my current project, yikes!)

Now you have something to do in doctors' waiting rooms and at hockey games. Your technique looks absolutely perfect, and I love your fabric choices. Another hit, my friend.

I love the look of this pattern, but it looked way too hard for me :) Your block looks fabulous...you can't even see any stitches!

So I didn't see this until today...my bad...but I wasn't sure what I was looking for on her blog? Perhaps because I didn't look yesterday, I don't understand.
Have I confused you yet? :D I know I am lost.

But I am looking for an applique' project to start and thought perhaps this one might have worked...but I don't know what I missed out on! lolol
