It's not difficult; you just need to be careful

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:

Dee, if your daughter should decide that she does not like red when the quilt is done, I have the correct address of were you will need to send it.

Ooooo, aren't you the sly rascal, Miss Jo. 

(You beat me to it!)

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!

Thanks, Sue.  I really did have fun working on it.  Yes, my scrap stash is pretty healthy!

woo hoo!   I have finished the top of my Hen House Forever Project!  It is roughly 56"x68".  I still need to make the binding for it and pin the binding to the top (so it doesn't get lost).  After the quilting, I'll sew on the teeny-tiny buttons for the eyeballs.

I already have the next handwork Forever Project started .. it's a Hidden Box EPP hexie project.   

But before I resume *that* project, I need to be longarm quilting the Stash Busting Stars and vine applique top for DD#2, who requested a new queen size quilt for herself.  I think I'm going to need to *think* about how to load the quilt, how to work with my Innova and generally, how to longarm again!  It's been a VERY long time since I last did any quilting!   That's probably not such a good idea ... to take such a long hiatus that you kinda forget things that once were second nature.  Perhaps I ought to put my hobbies in rotation ... a week on this, a week on that .. just so the knowledge doesn't become dusty.
