I was going to take a long break after making the Primitive Garden applique quilt but then found the Alaphabet pattern. My husband and I took a months vacation to see family in Texas and what did I take with me, yep you guessed it, my new pattern and lots of fabric. I completed most of the appliques while away and finished the quilt a couple of days ago. Now I really will take a break from applique, at least for a little while!!
