    How did you do that? I was editing.
    Working for a living interferes with fun, but it pays for it.

    Ah but you must have posted it first ....... and while you were editing, it left the original post there!

    Not supposed to do that. You come off looking somewhat clairvoyant.

    Oh GG I really love your TX Star!
    W4M - That is a lovely Mystery. I have a control issue also! It is part of what I like about quiltin', pickin' out the colors & plannin' what ta do with 'em! Your Maple leaf will be great. Is it gonna be the center? I think that ya said before but I don't remember.

    Thanks dublb. Yes, the cross stitch maple leaf is the centre. It will be surrounded by white squares with appliqued red maple leaves. I also have flag fabric to add some movement and interest. I hope to make some more progress this weekend, at least in applique stitch testing if nothing else.

    W4Me ... Are you going to do the Muv-technique for your applique?
    I'm anxious to try it ... and keep saying nooooooooooo, do your other things before you start something new!

    No, as I have already fused the leaves to the background fabric. Instant gratification, or close to it. I'm at the stitching stage now.

    Ok ya'll I need ta gripe a little. I don't know if ya'll know the reason I haven't planned anything for this challenge was because my PC club quilt is Patriotic. (I did want ta follow along w/ya'll. Ya'll have been wearing me down & I have been thinkin' about making a pot holder.) Anyway some of the PC blocks just don't work well w/my fabrics so I've been makin' some substitutes. I found a Mariners Compass that I wanted ta do as a sub. It is a 12 " block so I reduced it ta go w/my 8 1/2" blocks. Well I'm way behind on making my blocks. So I was working away on it & finally finished it very late last night. It's 9 1/2"!!!!! Sooooo I guess I'll make a pot holder out of it for this challenge.

    This is good news ... all good news!!!!
    Yes, a potholder, or instead you could border it up as a wall hanging? or a table topper or ??

    Maybe do it like a Round Robin (for one) ... and just keep doing things with it and keep changing it til you've got it bigger and better!
