    Ube on your quilt top and the bottom row

    I wouldn't have noticed it and I had to look 4 times before I realized what was wrong.
    It's very pretty! I have never tried any of the spools. but I love the look of them.
    You've done a great job on this!

    Ube I just love your work. I can copy many things but I have difficulty innovating.
    Jaba here is another fused piece. I copied the pattern from a sticker. It is for a friend who is a teacher - her theme this year is owls (5th grade). We also copied the pattern onto 8.5" squares. The kids will color the owls and I will heat set them and create a wallhanging. I love this owl though -he has googy eyes! Why am I on a bird kick?????

    Very nice owl.

    Just like you JNCT14, I see something I like and get an idea from it. Then I have to figure out a way to make the idea happen. I do not draw and get most of my stuff from any where I see a design, shape, figure or what ever and then pull it into a quilt.

    My Idea for the Q on this WH came from wanting to identify a place as a quilting space. "I am a quilter and this is my space".
    I incorporated scrapes from another quilt and the center block is from the backing of that quilt. The old tradition of use what you have.

    The one part of the spool block uses the square on the corner, sew diagonally and trim the corner off. I made a mini quilt using the leftover bits which I will post a little later.

    It is always one thing starts another and another and keeps the ball rolling.

    have fun.
    peace

    JNCT, love your owl! My 4 yo GD loves them too. I'm doing the BOM of owls at Fat Cat patterns. I love applique & just finished drawing my pattern for this swap. Love your rooster too- I have those in my kitchen (hint)

    I went to the Mancuso Quilt Show this last weekend and saw an appliqued quilt which I recognized. I knew I had that b
    ook at home from years ago and had loved the pattern but never made it. It was one of the earlier books which really hooked me on applique from 1994. I really should make the center medallion for this wall hanging.Then dress it up with some cutie pies. Yeah, good to have my design nailed down. Now I just have to start and finish the quilt for the show at the end of October. The fabric for it arrived yesterday....

    It's done, it's DONE!!! My October WH is finished and can be entered in the Durham Fair before it goes to its recipient. I tried to fit a rose but no room. I don't think it will win anything but I thought it came out cute! The whiteboard can be removed and replaced wit a picture or calendar if desired.

    Love the summer rose and if you had not mentioned it I never would have seen what your saying.. not sure I still do now so leave it be its lovely! and the owl super cute I too downloaded the whole pattern for owls on fat cat free each month its great... wonderful site for fusible designs and most of the time two or three free ones each month. a grand deal if you ask me. I got an email from Missouri star quilters today free shipping today only anyone need a copy of it holler!

    I have not started but fear not will complete one. I have about two little projects ahead of this little project then I can jump on it. wish me oodles of luck! I had best get off the board so I can actually do some of these things!

    Cute birds, ladies! Usually i do something with cats but I'm thinking of running in a different direction this time. Had an idea weeks ago but forgot to write it down so it now resides in the land of forgotten dreams and single lost socks. No problem! I will have another idea someday, lol. Maybe even today! Like what i see others are doing! I am still in texas for a few days... Hate to leave but Ido miss my pups and cats, and dh, too. Have skyped with them so know they are all good. 8-)

    The rooster in the rose pots is great and with the added area at the bottom for the white board/ calendar is very smart, indeed.
    Good luck with it at the fair.

    Here is the mini quilt made from the corners of the spool block in The Last Summer Rose, posted above. This may also be in the running for the swap. It's 12.5" sq. Each HST block is just over 1.25"sq. I may add some more rounds to it.

    Very pretty indeed! Of course I love anything small but the contrast in this is really great! I love black as a background or other dark color.

    peace[/QUOTE]

    OK, here goes! When I started quilting (applique) in the early 70s there were no new books, patterns or magazines. Then the Bicentennial hit in 1976 and quilting was hit with a jolt that started the explosion we are still enjoying today. The early applique was very simple and rather general in design until artists got their hands on it. Oh my! I still remember going to a quilt show and seeing my first raw edge applique on a wall hanging! What on earth is this? Another twist, how amazing with all the detail!
    Here are the books which I collected and eventually had put into binders and which chronicle my journey as a applique quilter. Botanical Wreaths by Laura Reinststler (1994), Applique in Bloom by Gariella Swain, Floral Applique by Nancy Pearson, Beautiful Blooms by Susan Propst, Paradise Stitched by Sylvia Pippen and Quilts From Nature by Joan Colvin. Some are old and out of print others newer and still available. With raw edge came the ability to really get into details enhanced by the use of fabric paints and photographs, another whole new dimension. Faces and Places by Charlotte Warr Andersen and painting books like Painting the Drama of Wildlife by Terry Isaac and Wildlife Painting by Patrick Seslar
    Hopefully you can see some of these books at a library (guild or public) and enjoy the progression of applique.

    NANCIA AMORE! come home we miss you! I thought you had abandoned me forever! she ran off with the burrito holding quilt boys from the Calendar.. if you haven't found that calendar its a sure hit. BO HUNKS holding burritos in their one hand and drapped stragically with quilts in another. it was the funniest thing I had seen in a long time and dear Nancia and I are always well.. drinking margaritas and arguing over who gets which month.. she thinks she gets them all but she is oh so wrong CATS! I love cats! you can make me a cat wall hanging! a pumpkin with a cat for Halloween!!! start sewing Nancia right now. yup a beautiful.. orange cat like mine with nice pokey long hair next to his orange pumpkin.. it could be great! purple sky! yellow moon! your creative juices should be oozing along right now so get at it girl!

    Aw rats now I am sorry I did not do a cat. However, my cousin who raises chickens as a hobby commissioned me to make him a rooster wall hanging after seeing mine on Facebook. My price was to find me a percolator - which we found Saturday at a tag sale - one of those beautiful Corning 10 cups percolators. I was so excited! So I started the wall hanging today.....ube - I need some clever chicken saying to use in the FMQ in the borders!

    Bratty..... I miss you, too! I hope you have saved me some crumpets and pepper jam! I have had my fill of burritos! As a special treat, my ddil is making me a twenty pound brisket. Yummmmmmmm y! The question is , can i eat it all before we get to Philly? Or will i be forced by impeccably good breeding and etiquette to share with my dh? Bear in mind he brought back a somewhat smaller one two weeks ago and it's. all gone, harrumph!

    @ post #223, JNCT14: I'll see what I can come up with and you are welcome to the haiku too.

    I love percolated coffee. My mom always used a pyrex clear glass pot. It sounded so cool and made great coffee. I still use a percolater. I even love the word.
