    Ditto--cute, cute, cute!! I love them all. These birds are really cute and I love your touch with the kitty! Have you thought about little tiny buttons or seed beads for door knobs? Just a thought....

    I did think about using buttons for the birds and other little things, but since the nearest quilt shop is almost an hour away, and Hobby Lobby and Walmart just dont have any cute stuff like that I decided to go with applique. I didnt want to wait until the next time we have a chance to get to OKC. Too impatient :lol: :lol:

    Melissa, I just discovered this thread. Your blocks are fabulous!! I just love the quilt pattern. It makes me wish I could do applique, but this pattern would probably be too difficult for a beginner. :(

    Machine fusible applique is not hard and is actually a lot of fun!! There are just a few tricks to it and then the only thing that holds you back is your imagination (and Melissa has a fabulous imagination!!!) I would recommend starting with a simpler pattern that has less pieces (and bigger pieces) and you will be hooked in no time. Go for it :lol:

    I saw your dresden plate machine applique and I would not call you a beginner.

    What Marcia said!!! And this really doesnt have that much applique. The houses are mostly pieced with just some accents appliqued. You should try it!!!!

    Thanks, Marcia. The dresden block was pretty easy, but the cottages look complicated. I guess I just need to jump in and give it a try. :D

    Melissa--this is my favorite one. I downloaded it to get a better look at all the detail. I like the yellow you used for the house-good choice-and the three dimensional shutters! How fun is that!! And the woman in the window arranging flowers-cute! The fence and gate are adorable-right down to the handle!! And the grass and stone fabrics are great! Definitely my favorite! It gets the 3 cute salute-Cute, Cute, Cute!!! (But, I do not want the other houses to feel bad so don't tell them this is my fav-they are all very cute too! :D )
