    Really neat way to do this applique, the block looks so nice.

    You know I really like the black background it does make it all pop

    Kathy, it will look really good on that wall...love what you have there now!
    Okay I was confused, I thought you had chocolate again. Let me go back and see if I can find it.

    Well Patti, sorry, it turned out to be a flannel fabric and not the same number at all. I searched again, but couldn´t come up with it. Such a shame you can´t find any

    No worries Elle, I think I will be ok...I'm going to use an alternating color for the plain blocks. I think it will turn out just fine. Thanks so much for looking though!

    The tutorial on Open Satin Stitch Applique has been moved. I guess I kinda expected that to happen. Below is the new link.

    I am not really joining the JTG club. I just know I am a procrastinator and I wanted to try to problem solve how the heck I was going to do these blocks. I love applique but am not very good at it so I thought joining this cyber-sew will help me stay on task and force me to hone my skills.

    So, after that lengthy intro, here are blocks 9 & 11. Ignore the whitish colourings. That is my washaway applique sheets. I didn't want to wash the individual blocks but wash them once they were sewn together (reduce fraying). So I removed a bit so you could see the batik colours.

    The background is black. The lines are with a triple stitch varigareted I bought along time ago (gee I think I not only have a fabric stash but also a thread stash ....oh-oh :) ). It's colours are blue, yellow & purple (primarily).

    I watched the tute on open satin stitch applique and as of now, this is the way I am going to do my quilt. I will do the embroidery and quilting by hand but I will try to do everything else on my machine.

    Debe, Its always a good idea to sort out what method you are going to be doing, and those are great blocks (love your fabric choice). Could you possibly put the stabiliser behind the background so that you don't have to look at all that white until you can wash the blocks, or am I missing something here?

    Well, I've decided for sure that I will be learning to do "real" needleturn (without using freezer paper). I've tried it a little bit and I'm very very slow, but I figure that I'll get better at it by the time we get done with this one!

    Debbie, its hard to see with the stabalizer on there, but it looks like you are "getting" it!

    Loise..I don't blame you, that will be quicker and will look very neat and clean!

    Thought ya'll might like to see my very very expensive light table...keep in mind, its hard to find one like it!! LOL!!!

    My fancy smancy light table!

    Patti is just modest - it was her idea to get this all set up. Thanks to PatriceJ, our moderator, it has been done - quickly, too!

    Patti - I had chairs just like yours when we lived in New Hampshire & Milwaukee. Left them with the house in Milwaukee as we were moving ourselves & saved on weight as much as possible! They sure were comfortable! Table was round with 2 leaves. How 'bout yours?

    I used to do something quite similar to your lightbox, only I used a pull out storm window I took out those 2 leaves from the table. I put a lamp on the floor. I have the same lamp you are using, next to the sewing machine! What I really want is that bendable attachable little light they make for machines, but is so expensive. I think Amazon.com has them for cheaper. Need to check.

    Ooooh...Oooohhh Kathy! I just bought one of those bendable lights from sewforless.com. I paid 1/2 price for it and I love that little thing! Thank goodness I had it for doing the pebbling on Jane, it was so helpful!

    My table is an antique Maple rectangular drop leaf table. So...no pulling apart, but the storm window is a great idea. I don't have those anymore though.

    it isn't stabilizer. it helps place the applique so i don't have to trace/place it. I put it on the background so i know where to put my applique and I can just trace the stitches.

    I like things I don't have to trace because I am not great at it...so i photocopy the pattern on the applique sheet and place that on the background and then add on top. Then when all is said and done it washes away and there is nothing in between but fabric.

    Hey, I like that light table. It's almost as fancy as mine. I'm using the glass out of a picture frame, laying across two 2x4's with an undercounter light underneath it. It works.

    I've been working on some needleturn applique, trying it different ways and have decided that I like the backbasting way the best so far. I was having trouble with things not lining up as well as I'd like when I traced the pattern onto the front of the block and traced the individual pieces onto their fabric. But by tracing onto the back and basting each individual piece of fabric where it goes, it works great for me. Still not very good at any of it, but I do enjoy it.

    Debbie, I love your signature! That is me in a nutshell! I don't clean much - out here the dust is a protective furniture coating. The stuff on the floor is "patina." I only cook because Dh & I get hungry. He computes & I quilt! OK, the bathrooms are the exception - I have a phobia about bathrooms not being clean - but only bathrooms. Maybe that came from living with 3 boys & only 1 bath. I was always cleaning it, sometimes multiple times a day! The next house we bought had 3 & the boys were responsible for their own! I took care of the guest one.

    Love the way you think. I actually have a sign that reads "Housework won't kill me but I'm not taking any chances!"

    For anyone waiting, you can join me in the BUTR club (Bringing Up The Rear) lol. I am a procrastinator by nature, and someone has to be last.

    Debbie, your blocks are going to be beautiful! I love the color combinations.

    Very creative, Patti! Necessity is the mother of invention, huh?

    I used to do a lot of stained glass, so I decided to use the light box that I cut glass on. The grid on the top section was very helpful with cutting glass, but is sort of annoying when I'm tracing patterns on fabric. I'll live through it, though. :-)

    Heh Patti, I love that lightbox, I have been trying to think how I could make one and voila there you are using two chairs, I am going to do that, much easier to work with.
