Applique Musings

Finally some appliquè   progress.  I am hand needle-turning the appliquè blocks for the "Just Takes 2" quilt.  Not being an appliquè person, I am quite slow at doing it.  This is where the challenge issued on the Stashbuster group  is good - it is my prod to keep on working on the appliquè blocks.  

Block 91 - The basket block from the logo in my side-bar (see right)

Block 72 - A Pretzel!
Last year I learnt how to do Reverse Appliquè and I found it really easy, which surprised me as I knew nothing at all about the technique - so with the two blocks above, I treated them as reverse appliquè and what do you know?  I got them made without the normal 'brain blockers' that would appear in my head when the word appliquè was ever mentioned.
I have 2 machine appliquè projects on the go as well, so, when I have finished the Just Takes 2 blocks, I'll be moving onto those and using the next 12 months to make lots of progress on them - I hope!
