For one you will have the whole big quilt in your lap and then have to quilt through all layers of the fabric and it will show on the back.  Unless you know how to embroider just the one layer after it is quilted.

and that is EXACTLY my plan!  You are so clever to read my mind. :-)      There is a technical way to securely start and finish the embroidery without needing to go through all 3 layers.  It's not difficult; you just need to be careful.

My brother passed away last week. 

Ah, I am so sorry to hear that.  It was certainly expected but it's sad news all the same.  My thoughts are with you.  (((( Cathy ))))

I'm sure you have all that figured out.  I would do it the other way.

1st applique block is done.  Prep'ing two others now.

I'm thinking about putting 3 together, on point, then adding pieced rows all around.  something like this:

Lynne, I love your houses quilt!  All the little guys peeking out of the doors is a great reflection of our cautious/nervous times.  But the bright colors show an optimism I hope comes true!  You have a most enviable stash to do all those cute blocks!
