Welcome to My Quilting Blog!

I LOVE looking at quilt blogs, but never thought of starting one of my own until recently. I hope you enjoy it!

I was terrified of applique. I always loved it, but was too afraid to try it myself. Recently, I decided to just go for it and gave it a try. I had nothing to lose but a few scraps, right? Well, now I am positively hooked and all I want to do is applique.

I looked long and hard for an applique project and finally found the right one for me. It is Meg's Garden from Don't Look Now . The pattern arrived and I ABSOLUTELT LOVE IT!!! The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. Will definitely buy more of Kellie's patterns. Here are a few images of my progress so far:

I may have to put butterfly applique on everything from now on!

I haven't ironed the flowers on yet, but had fun placing them on the background!
Have a great day!
