Hi Everyone!

I have recently gotten into applique, I have done a few projects and feel like I'm becoming more of an intermediate with it. I am going camping in three weeks and am looking for a project to work on during the drive and when I'm just hanging out. Does anyone have any suggestions of patterns or books that have good patterns? I'm open for anything! Thank you!

Hello Abby,

BunnyHillDesigns has a lot of fun designs that might be up your alley. They currently have a free BOM going called "Snow Bound". The appliqué group here has been working on Tisket a Tasket from the same designer. Browse the group's forums for other great ideas. I know other members will be chiming in with even more suggestions. Have fun camping.

When we went camping a few months ago and I needed a take-along project,  I did this:

 

I made carboard templates of basic shapes in 3 sizes each  -eye shape, fan, tear, leaf,  and the heart like thingy on the blue- pink-yellow flower. I selected my fabrics and pressed, starched and cut 6" squares from each, and cut a back ground fabric. I cut a few green bias strips, tossed some washers (For small circles) a needle and thread in my sewing kit.  When we got to the cabin, I let the kids fiddle with arranging the templates  and tracing them on paper to make flower like designs and then color them while I appliqued the vines. Each child designed one flower. I saved the last one for myself.  When they were don,  all I had to do was fill in the blah spots with dots and leaves...  We didn't use all of the templates or all of the sizes, but we had that option. It was fun.

Quilters are people who strip so they won't go topless.
