    Most of my applique is dogs. I have done some flowers, as in 'Happy Daisies'. I will have to look and see what I might have left. I give most of my stuff away.

    Here are the dogs.

    We just finished re-doing the bathroom. I found the perfect plain shower curtain and am planning on appliqueing the flowers from Eleanor Burns' Magic Vine book.

    I had made a table runner with the magic vine and added whimsical birds on it and love it so much that I'm going to do it on the shower curtain. I hung the table runner up on the shower rod and think it will be the finishing touch that I'm looking for. And if it isn't, then I'll cut off the "button hole" hooks and have a new tablecloth!

    I only know how to hand applique. Also, applique on wool is the most enjoyable hand sewing that I've ever done.

    I have done both frezer paper applique, and fused with raw edge applique. I love doing applique, count me in!

    I just finished my first applique project. Dumb me-I chose circles. Used freezer paper and lots of starch. It didn't turn out too bad. I like this, CraftyBear-I can't wait to see all the suggestions from everyone.

    I started appliqueing more than thirty years ago. As my vision changed and some arthritis crept into my fingers, I do just machine applique now using the satin stitch. I love it and do quite a lot of it.

    I've done some applique by hand and some by machine with invisible thread, but nothing very complicated. I've stuck with pretty simple shapes.

    I would like to do the fusible with the machine buttonhole stitch, but wonder if that would hold up to lots of wear & tear if used for kids' quilts.

    I'd also like to do needle turn, but haven't tried it yet.
    I enjoy handwork-find it relaxing. But by machine gets completed faster.

    I just started my first applique crib quilt for my grandson who is due to arrive Dec 7 :). His parent s would like a quilt similar to the Pottery Barn airplane on a blue and blus gingham background. I have all the pieces of the design ( self drafted) cut out and on freezer paper. Next dilema is to decide how to sew them the a big white cloud. This will then be added rto top layer fabric and sandwich put together. I think I will baste the edges down and then machine stitch on or try hand stitches that are large w/embroidery thread to give the homemade effect I would love some tips on how to proceed. I was thinking of cutting the backside of the cloud part to take out the freezer paper and use it agin at a later date. The hand sketching was the toughtest part for me.

    That's beautiful! So you didn't fold down the edges prior, right? That's what hand-turn applique means?

    I really like needleturn applique too, but I have a terrible time with points. Any pointers on that?
