    Wow! These are great! I'm a bit shy of applique. Since I joined this site my to-do list has definitely gotten longer! :D Too many things to do before I learn (and gain the patience for) applique. :wink:

    Weste, what is the pattern name of your beautiful quilt?

    . Now I'm curious, is appliqué all done with the same slipstitch method that I'm doing the Hawaiian one with or are there various stitches used?

    Steve,
    I am not the applique expert on this site by any means. I am a beginner! I use the same little tiny stitch that I try to hide to the best of my ability on my applique and my pseudo Hawaiian attempt.

    There are other stitches to use on applique and other techniques. You can do raw edge appliue, machine applique, etc. The list is endless, I am sure!

    I recommed that you hit the search button at the top of the page, type in applique and then read through the applique notes there and then google it and then find a book or two and read and then listen to what Leslee has to tell you.

    Eventually you will find a style that you like best OR you'll find that you do not like applique at all. The main reason I am learning to applique is that all the quilts I like best have some. Grr! I prefer machine piecing traditional quilts. It's just that I'm not a patient person. I want it done yesterday, thank you very much! I'm working on realizing that I'm not working for someone else any longer and my time is my own. I need to RELAX! Oh, yeah, I'm doing real good on that!

    Your quilts are lovely and I like your website. I really loved the watercolor quilt and hope one day to try one myself. I've got that on the list, along with one day creating a website, too. :-)

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
    Quiltin's just too much fun, isn't it?

    Karla, thanks for the compliment. My slogan is, "You can never have too much color!" though I've approached it a few times!

    Thanks again for checking out the pics.

    Whoa! Yvonne, I REALLY, REALLY don't like pink, nor do I care much for the blue (turquoise?) in your Good and Plenty quilt. But I have to say the quilt is just GORGEOUS! I may not like those colors much, but, boy, do they WORK in that quilt with the black and white patterning. Good lesson to me about color, that's for sure. Good and Plenty is definitely my favourite.

    You ladies make me blush! :oops: I'm glad your enjoying looking at my quilts. I need to go back and add another page of my latest efforts. Soon as I find some extra time! Ha! Meanwhile, Thank you so much for your sweet words!

    A little background here on "Good and Plenty." It was made for a high school graduate. I asked her mother about colors and her room was black and white with hot pink accents! At first those were the only colors planned for this quilt but the gold and turquoise got involved and they just seemed to work. It was amazing to watch this quilt grow. Nothing was planned ahead, no pattern to speak of. It just "happened!"
