Melody & Jacy, I'm doing needle turn too.

EAT!! SLEEP !! QUILT!!
I'm considering this. Looks like a fun project and I've been wanting to start doing some applique. I've downloaded all the instructions... just a matter of seeing how busy I am when you ladies are getting started. :) I would probably start with machine applique - at least for the larger pieces.
I have the first one cut out and the cottage stitched on the background. I have pinned and unpinned the edge a number of times but I think I finally have it in the right place. Now if I can get it to sew on in some type of close to right I will be happy.

I think I will follow Barbara and machine applique them. or at least partly...but not right now. hopefully in a couple weeks.
Are we going to start with block #1 with the snowman, or since we're starting in March, will we start with block #3 with the shamrocks?
To keep things simple, I think it would be best to start with block #1 the snowman. What do the rest of you think about that?
I don'tcare where we start ,I'll fo with the flow .. barbara
I was just looking at these blocks the other day! I'm in; I'll try to do needle turn but will probably end up going to the machine. I'll get the patterns downloaded and go pick up background fabric on Friday.
it doesn't make a difference to me where we start.

I'm really looking forward to this. I had found this pattern then someone from another group told me you were doing this so I would love to join in. It is always more fun to learn something new with others.
I don't care where we start.
I'm not too fond of some of the larger elements on the left side of each block. They just seem so out of proportion to me. I might make other elements in those areas and I'll post them as I get them completed. Or were you going to offer alternatives yourself? Specifically, Block 4 and Block 8.
It doesn't really matter to me where we start. But since I did start with the snowman....
