    Yes, CraftyBear, I really like this quilt. It's done using 12 blocks, like a Sampler quilt.

    It's a packet containing a 15 page booklet and has individual sheets for each 14" block (back to back)and another for the appliqued border. Each applique piece is numbered. It may be a bit too ambitious for a real newbie but would be well worth the effort if you like hand work. The price is $17.95 and with the 40% off came to $10.75 + tax. Would I buy it again now that I've seen the work involved? You bet I would!

    It's a bright red cardboard packet, right in with the books.
    I will probably do it in muslin. Hope this is the info that you wanted.

    That's my goal for the next three months, to learn applique. I started out with the dresden, and now, I am going to try a Sun Bonnet Sue. I didn't think I would like it, but I really do.

    thanks for the information, will need to look for it at Joann's

    I just did a search and found the website and the books that they publish

    http://www.pieceocake.com/Books/books.html

    bought "Aunt Millie's Garden" by Piece O'Cake Designs with my 40% coupon from Jo-Ann's. It's beautiful - and it's still
    unopened! There is a good chance that I bit off a little more than I can chew. (ya think???) With your help I will do it!!! Great Idea, CB. Thanks for starting this!!

    I saw it on Sewing With Nancy. All the edges were already finished, so I could concentrate on getting the stitches right.

    I found an easy dresden plate pattern (it has to be easy if I can do it). PM and I can show you.

    I just found this applique Club postings and I want to learn more about applique. I've tried needle turn and have had mixed results so now am trying to figure out which way will work best for me. I just came back from vacation and have now bought some spray basting to see if that will help. I am not a fan of fusibles because it feels too stiff. I recently tried some basting glue and was pretty happy with that. It still allowed the flexibility and stayed long enough for me to stitch it.
