The year of applique!

I've always wanted to learn how to applique. I tried it once but I didn't like the method and swore I would never do it again. Then I learned the needle turn method and now I'm hooked for life. I made three or four applique quilts last year and I now have several more in progress. The Hawaiian one I made on a single road trip from Seattle to Las Vegas. It holds many great memories of sights Larry and I saw and great conversations we had. The Bird on a Wire quilt was my first attempt at applique and it was the perfect quilt to start with. Because its a primitive style quilt, nothing has to be perfect! Then I got brave and made a Tisket a Tasket. It is a more detailed quilt but so much fun!

Stay tuned for more applique because I love it!!!!
