    This quilt was machined, with satin stitch around all the pieces.
    I'm guessing that my plan to use the embroidery module to make the blocks WILL work, judging from the photo of her sitting at her embroidery machine with the block hooped! Not such an original thought after all, LOL.

    Her quilt is fabulous, and I love that border too, but won't think about that for a LONG time yet!

    WooHoo! We are off & running with this quilt. Lesley is going to be a big help, I can tell. She is so talented & I really appreciate her help & enthusiasm. I also expect that Patti will be here helping out, too - another talented and sweet person.

    I haven't started sewing a single block for you as I have a couple of other projects that I need to get finished & shipped off. You can see one of the projects on Lacelady's PDA, page 400. I am having to force myself to work on it. It is so boring - the same thing over & over. This is why I really like samplers!

    I'll be keeping in touch. Will check back in after work.

    Thanks, Dar. Are you thinking about joining us in making the Affairs of the Heart quilt? There is plenty of time to gather your supplies as we won't be starting until June 5.

    Think about it & let us know.

    Yippee!! And we are off and running! I'm going to do this one. I'm thinking about a dark olive type green background (I think the colors will still pop) and then use fabs that are in the autumn color range with some creamy lights thrown in to make it pop. I'm considering using the blocks on point to enlarge the quilt but not the blocks. I haven't gotten to thinking too much about the borders yet...but we'll get there! You know how all these decisions change in the "doing". I also haven't decided on the technique yet either.

    Kathy..are we allowed to post a pic of the entire quilt here or maybe the cover of the book so people can see it without going anywhere else?? And THANK YOU for organizing all this..the schedule looks very doable!

    I'm in! I just started working through the Penny Haren applique quilt with the group on this board and am really enjoying that. The Penny Haren schedule wraps up in August, so I think the timing is perfect. There will be a little overlap, but not for too long. I plan on doing needle-turn, which is a different technique than the Penny Haren quilt and I want to learn how.

    I plan to use unbleached muslin as a background and warm-color batiks. These blocks are so pretty, I think I want them on my bed - I have plenty of time to play around with the size to get that right before we begin. Will order my book today!

    What fun! Thanks for putting this together.

    Hi, welcome Lara!!! I was looking at that Penny Haren thread. I might have to try that one AFTER the AOTH. I bet you'll do a great job on this quilt after doing the "pieced applique"! Your colors sound really pretty...
