This is the January block for the Seasonal Applique BOM I am doing. The pattern showed fusible applique but I chose to do needle turn. The beak on the bird is satin stitched. The block measures 12 1/2" unfinished.
Lori at Humble Quilts posted the next round for the Abundance Quilt quilt-a-long. I really love this little doll quilt. It finishes at 12". In the next post Lori is going to show us how she quilted it.
Remember this? It is my Henrietta Whiskers quilt. I had put it up and totally forgotten about it. Since my New Year's Resolution was to finish something before I start something (which I have broken) I decided to dig it out and work on it. As you can see I have finished 7 blocks.
Here is block number 8. I had the background all pieces and the applique pieces cut out and marked. Last night I appliqued the house. Today I hope to finish the pumpkin and leaves. Then one more block to go and I can sew the blocks together and start adding the borders. Some of which also have applique.
And you won't believe what I'm going to start working on....Well let's save it till next time.
BTW Today Sammie showed a little spunk. She hasn't been feeling too good the last couple of days but today she actually wanted to play for a bit.
Stay warm....it's only 14 degrees out and it's almost noon. However, the sun is shining so it looks beautiful out. Have a great day.
