    I got my book in the mail today and can't wait to get started. I do have two UFO's I must get finished before I can start. Love the look of batiques on black. Thanks for the tip about using color catchers. Normally I don't wash my fabrics first but then I have never used batiques, so lesson learned.

    I like your colors. I have not decided yet if I will machine or hand applique but am leaning toward machine.

    After Kathy posted her tutorial on machine appliquing, I tried it and really liked it. But for this one I am doing it by hand. It will be my evening project to sit with hubby while he watches t.v.

    Lynnie, I love your fabric choices!!! I find that to be really hard (my DH helps me). I know in a second if I've made the wrong decision, so I audition a lot.

    I like your second block the best too...it does seem to pop more, although I like the 1st one too. I don't think you could go wrong either way.

    As for the technique, you'll just have to make a personal decision- machine vs. by hand. I am doing needle turn by hand as its a technique that I really want to learn and get better at doing. I also need a hand work project for tv time at night with DH. There are lots doing machine though.

    Sorry everyone, I posted pics of my finished block, and forgot to come back and answer questions.

    I am photocopying my block, enlarging it to 142% so that it will look right on a 10in finished block (I am cutting my fabric out at 11in, because that fits nicely across the width of Kona cotton.

    I then put the copy on a light box (Patti posted some suggestions for these on the main thread) and cover with the black, then trace the design with a Sewline Pencil (yellow lead).

    I appliqued the blue onto the yellow, then cut away some of the yellow behind the blue (to cut down on bulk)

    Back, once the yellow is appliqued to the black, and again cut away

    This is the back of my final block, with hearts cut away

    Once we get some more pics on these threads, I am willing to bet that everyone's choices will look equally good.

    Posting my Block 9 to the group. This is the one that I needed to re-do. The Razzle Dazzle didn't line up anywhere close to where I thought it should be. I am applying it by doing bobbin work. The Razzle Dazzle is in the bobbin & I'm working from the back.

    Beautiful job, Kathy. I can't imagine trying to do that from the back, but you've figured it out obviously.

    Actually, you quilt it from the front first, using invisible thread. Then turn it over and put the Razzle Dazzle bobbin in the machine. You now go over the places you have already quilted, so you have guidelines. It's just that my free motion is really free - all over the place! :cry:
