then a day of piecing 4-patches & half=square triangle blocks
a couple days (building the blocks)
and on sunday managed
This is the second one I've done from this pattern. This one is smaller, and crisper, I think. I machine quilted it. Just SITD in the center, and two lines of quilting in the border. This one is going to AAQI, probably in March.
I got the joyous news today that I am cancer free!!!!!!
It has taken me some time to come to terms with this new van. I went into the dealership just to look and possibly to trade our 2001 town and country in on a 2006 van. But we walked out with a brand new 2012 Dodge Caravan. I was just not ready for that I guess!

Ok so if you want to do just one small I will assign you to the same amount of people doing yours. Like if 6 people work on yours you only work on 6 people's.
Dotty made a good suggestion I will pm each person there order of people please print it out and put it in with the top.

May seem small to others, but when it takes 15 mins to load a 1 min video, it gets very frustrating after a while! Being I am a visual learner, I use YouTube for my "how to's." We got faster internet installed yesterday, so now it just PLAYS when I click… YEAH!
With this being said, I have been looking at how to hand appliqué. I see various techniques so I am trying to determine which will work best for me. I see some use freezer paper, some use fusible web, some use
