Sorry for the slow reply.  I went to Mexico.  We stopped in Puerto Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas.  It was a cruise put together by my sister-in-law.  It was all girls.  Me, my SIL, her sister and mother, me and  my MIL.  It was a great experience but I'm glad to be home!

Hi Everyone, It's me Ree!  I want to make a country cousins quilt too!  I watch my grandkids in the summer so I like to do hand applique.  I'm not the greatest at it but I am a firm believer in "Finished is better than perfect."

On another thought, I was watching the Cricut machine on HSN and wondered if anyone ever used one to cut applique shapes?  I though it was not so bad since so many "dies" are included.  Any thoughts?  Thanks Ree

hi ree, we will love to have you join us making this quilt.  we are working out of a book, baltimores country cousins,  by mckelvey. 

    as to the cricut,  you'ld need a die for each shape, and the dies are very expensive.  i don't know if you can even get custom dies made.   you could probably use it for a generic leaf.      

  i like your quote" finished is better than perfect"    i like to say "if it's done, it's good enough"    gini

Having trouble with the bird on this one. I'm going to give it another shot but I might go with an easier bird from another block.

kris, no need for a bird even,  just bring a couple of stems out from where the hearts are, end them below where the bird is supposed to be and drop another heart in your block.

Hello All,

I finally got it done. I liked the motifs on the flower fabric so I fussy cut it and did not make centers for my flowers. The bird was a pain (placement and tiny curves) but I persevered. Without further ado:
