Applique For Sugar Creek Stuff Blogger


I've discovered a blogger who is as addicted to fabric as I am. She asked me to post some of my applique which is why some of you are seeing this stuff for the second time. The new blogger resides at http://sugarcreekstuff.blogspot.com. Check her out.

The picture with the cow contains one non-applique. I'm sure you can guess which one. Sometimes I post whatever is on my design wall. The five baskets are part of an applique block of the month class I'm taking. We will have a total of 12 blocks which we will make into a quilt. We have ten blocks done. I did the heart applique quilt for my sister who was seriously ill this year. The road runner table runner is from Albuquerque. My son used to live there so on our last visit I bought this to remember Albuquerque.

In January I'm starting a new applique block of the month class which will end up being a Baltimore Album Quilt. I started quilting about 15 months ago and very quickly discovered my love for applique.

I just followed you over from SCS's blog, hoping to find some applique information. Your work is beautiful!

I'm just getting started doing appliques. Do you have any suggestions for good tutorials, books or websites?

I liked your description of yourself. I grew up Mormon in Oklahoma. I've overcome the Mormon, but not the Oklahoma, quite yet. Still in my blood, even though I live in Idaho.
