    Yes, it's true...I am cured of ever wanting to do applique again. I have attended 3 of 9 monthly "therapy" sessions. Although I am totally cured, I WILL persevere and attend the remaining sessions....just to make sure. Some of the applique pieces I am being forced to cut and attach to my quilt blocks are smaller that a pea, and as thin as a toothpick. Yup....I am cured. :lol:

    I know what you mean! If I ever fo a another applique quilt all the pieces have to be a good size.

    Your quilt will be beautiful. Just keep telling yourself that.

    I love applique (machine), but I've never done such tiny pieces. I might change my mind if I do that.

    I will definitely post pix when done...this is a BOM class, so won't be finished 'til spring. And yes, it will be very pretty when done. Just not something I will tackle again.

    I signed up at our LQS for a monthly block club (you pay a dollar for the kit. If you make it before the next meeting the next month you get the next one for a dollar. If you don't make it, the next kit is $5.) It's 2 things I'm not crazy about...applique' (because I don't really know how very well) and baskets. Not a big basket fan. They said I could do my own thing with the fabrics, but I'm going to make myself do the applique' baskets. Maybe!

    Applique is not my thing. I have tried and just don't like it. I love looking at it though.

    I just love applique but not that good at it, stick with it and I'm sure it will turn out great.

    I think once would be enough for me ... In fact.. I think I would have to stop halfway through, thread paint the rest of the pieces and make it in to a table runner instead of a quilt lol.

    You have more patience than I do!

    I remember a friend of mine who said she would NEVER do that "A" word. Well then we did a fund raising quilt where she agreed to do a block. After finishing the block I figured she would never touch applique again. In stead after seeing the end product she went on to do applique on most of her quilts. Now after swearing to never do the A word another friend helped with a machine applique project and is now hooked. I know its frustrating when learning, but my suggestion would be take the skills you have learned and then "do it your way". I rarely do hand applique anymore, its always machine work.

    I love machine applique. I make up my own designs for projects and usually have an applique project going along with other quilt tops !!!

    Mine either. I tried it, it was a lot of work, and I thought this is kind of like coloring. Just filling in spaces with color. It's all my in-laws did. Beautiful but not my thing. I'm a piecer.

    I agree completely. I did one about 3 years ago and never did another.
