    QuiltinLee Your applique is exquisite! I especially like the three dimentional look of that last one. That's going to be so pretty when it's done!

    They're all 4-D. It's hard to see on the pictures.

    And best of all, they're NOT appliqued!! The pieces are almost all put on with fusible interfacing then stuffed!

    Wow, even taking a second (and third) look, it's hard to see it on the first ones. I wouldn't have guessed they were simply fused on there and stuffed. Looks like you spent months taking teeny tiny stitches. Are you planning to secure them any other way than the fuse, such as a blanket stitch or whatever?

    I used a blanket stitch with silk thread to catch most of the edges. Anything that has dimension was left alone.

    It's one of those "Quilt in a Day" patterns. Ha ha. More like a block in a day in my world! :D

    I'll try to take better pictures tomorrow so that you can see the dimension.

    Oh ok, I see that now. I keep going back up for a closer look. I see the blanket stitch now, and I can see the dimension better too now that I know what I'm looking for. Those are just so pretty!

    You did a great job on those blocks. Thanks for sharing. I can't wait to see the whole quilt after you put it together.

    What awesome applique. I am really looking forward to seeing the finished quilt.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.
