Applique Monday

Surfing the net, I found a wonderful sew a long on Sentimental Stitchers . I really like ‘The 1857 Album Quilt’. It has taken me a while to decide on the fabric I wanted to use.                             DSCN2026                 I placed iron-on-pellon on the back of the fabric in the hopes it helps to stabilize the sewing.

  Very pleased with the final outcome.  Just need to add the melons in the cornors, but won’t do that till I sew a couple of blocks together.  I am concerned about the melons matching up.  Once I sew the a few blocks together, it will be easy to match up the melons.

Happy Sewing Hugs, Kathleen Mary

  1. Must tell you, I have decided to turn the ends under and blanket stitch on the machine. I have used freezer paper with raw edges in the past but I am not fond of the raw edges.

  2. Hi Kathy, I thought I would drop by and visit – and also to see if I have a problem commenting… I love the colours you are using here…

  3. I love those blocks, and the fabrics you chose for this one are fabulous. I’ll love watching this come along. I liked the blocks, too, but I haven’t made any. I’m saving the patterns, though!
