OH, that's awesome!!!!!!!!!!

Did you make up the pattern or did you buy the pattern?

Thanks, everyone! Catherine, I based that on a rubber stamp I saw once and just drew it out from there.

Oh for cute!  You just ... "drew it out from there."  That's called "talent" Melissa.  

Very cute.  (Other people think about doing things like this ... you DID it!)

LOL! Thanks, Kath. But after the first one, the come much easier. you just have to let go of the ingrained need for a specific pattern!!

I love the fabric you chose for the mouse, and of course the towel adds just the perfect touch!  What method of applique do you use?  I can't zoom in close enough to see what the edge treatment is.

I use whatever will work best for the particular quilt. This one was simply fused and then machine stitched close to the edge. I turn and hand stitch on my "people" quilts.

I love this block.. I'm working on my first quilt of machine app. blocks. I  have the designs on the blocks. Trying to zig zag around the designs.. I keep pulling in the unfused fabric.. What should I do? Add fusing to all the fabric.. Curves as I'm trying to do a flip flop pattern...

quiltingnana: it sounds like you need to use a stabelizer on the back.  I do a lot of machine applique and have used several different stabelizers - from several different purchased stabelizers (tear away and wash away) to pages torn from an old phone book ( I like using those the best).

How cute!  Love it!

quiltingnana; I agree on the stabilizer. You can use an iron on or a tear away you apply with some basting spray. If you are very close to the edge of the block it will suck in the fabric even more. In that case, use a piece of stabilizer bigger than the block. Also be sure you have a good sharp needle and be sure your tension isn't too high.

Sunshinerandall: great tip on the phone book pages.
