WIP Wednesday 5/29


Just a short post today to share what I have been working on the past few days.  The end of the school year is so incredibly busy, isn't it?  I have this applique block from the pattern, Baltimore and Bali, all prepped and it is in the process of being stitched down.  I use turned edge applique using an applique foundation I purchase at Purple Daisies.  I love this method.  My applique has gotten so much nicer since I started using it.  


You can see in this close up that everything is stitched down but the rust colored piece.  Sorry for all the fuzzies.  Black picks up everything.  I love how crisp all my curves and points look.  If you have never tried turned edge you should.  

I did get a little bit done on my Lazy Sunday Mystery this weekend.  I have just a little bit left to do before the next part is released in the next Quiltmaker.  (And I just visited Bonnie Hunter's blog and found out she received her copy already!  I better get working on that!)

This week I am linking up to Freshly Pieced.  Click the banner below to head over and check out what everyone is working on.

  1. So pretty...I love looking at needle turn applique.

  2. Beautiful. I love colour intensity against the black.

  3. Lovely! You are a very fine appliquer: your stitches are invisible! I keep thinking I should try black for a background. This block is more encouragement to do it!
