I know it looks like it is already done but.. I use the no melt mylar method that means no marking and no pins and no basting. This is the easiest way to do applique. It is used more for quilts that have thesame pattern all over...like circles. I have a feeling that I will be making another one of these so I am making the templates so that I will not have alot of work on the second one.
I am choosing fabrics that are in my stash so you are probably wondering what my rhyme or reason is.. well there really is none.. just auditioning my light/medium and dark values and going from there. I was trying to use some "primitive colors" but I keep going back to those "Piece of Cake" frosting type colors.. but I have toned it down some... haven't I????
I am almost finished binding one of the signature quilts and I can applique this while I am on break at work...
I have another block # 3 that is almost complete....LOL you can still see the thread and needle I wanted to post it though cause on another sight we are talking about circles and I wanted to show what my circles look like using Karen Kay Buckley's perfect circles. They are a dream to work with and I will make the ones for the sizes that are not in her package.. but believe me there are many, many sizes to chose from.
