I am attending a quilt retreat with my local guild. So far I've almost finished three UFOs with the exception of the quilting. It is easier to be focused when in s room of fellow quilters!!

I'm continuing to work on my granddaughter's wedding quilt. Hope to finish the last pieced border this week. Then just plain borders to finish it off. I know she's going to love it, it's in her wedding colors of burgundy, rose and gray. I wish now I had added a touch of gold fabric to jazz it up a bit. I did add some gold color, via crayon, in some of the small floral black on white patches.

Also, continuing with the 365 day challenge. About 80 blocks so far, mostly 3". Using only scraps in a hopeless attempt to reduce my bins of bits and pieces. This will be one wild and scrappy quilt.

That's awesome Judy. I've only made two of these blocks though I've been faithfully downloading the blocks. The scraps will continue to multiply. I don't know if we'll ever see the bottom of those bins.

Hello Everyone,

Happy Easter.

I'm hosting my own book giveaway in the paper piecing blog. The book is "Moda All-Stars All in a Row".

It's not a paper piecing book (various techniques) so don't let that scare you away. Visit the blog and leave a comment for a chance to win.

Thanks.

I'm almost finished with piecing my granddaughter's wedding quilt, just a couple more of the outer borders. It's going to be a few inches smaller than I originally intended. Only about 95 x 95. And, I'm not happy with it at all. The fabrics or the quality of my piecing. I do like the pattern, which I designed in EQ7, but had trouble with the custom sizes. I should have taken more time. 

So, I'm making another one with a few different fabrics and slight adjustments to the pattern. It's coming out better although I had to order another 2 yards of fabric for the background.

I intend to completely finish both versions and give her a choice.

I'm making templates for applique now, but the 365 challenge sounds fun.

i'm procrastinating i'm not sure for an applique quilt is it better to fuse the fabric to fusible then trace, or do each piece individually then fuse each for machine applique? what is your opinion?

Is, if I'm understanding correctly, you need to trace your design onto the fusible first. If you fuse it to the fabric first, it might be difficult to trace on the design. I suppose if you use a light box it might show up through the fabric.

Is this what you're asking? I'm old honey, and often misunderstand things. LOL

OK, I might add something. I have traced a design directly onto a fabric, using a light box and removable Frixion pen. But that's when I'm doing needle turn applique, not machine applique and not using a fusible.
