Nancy Lee Chong of Pacific Rim Quilting Company.  Specifically,  look at their "2 Fabric" patterns. 

*THIS* is the pattern that changed my applique life in 2007:

Hi again!  Thanks, that's great information!  Nice also to learn how you got into this method.  I like to have some ongoing "hand" work, so this could work for me.

Up til now, I've done some very simple appliqué work, but maybe I'm ready for something more complex.

I finished this little baby quilt this week.

Cute quilt and I love the peekaboo bunny.

Thanks Tucky!

How are things out your way ?  It's snowing here right now, so sure doesn't look like Easter weekend.

According to latest projections here, we senior ladies (and guys too) are going to be in self-isolation for a while yet.

Happy Easter!

HAPPY EASTER to you - and the SNOW BUNNY.   

Thankfully we quilters usually have more than enough to keep busy and out of trouble.  As for me, I could live through 5 quarantines and never run out of fabric!!  I am working on a the 2018 mystery and have one row put together.  All borders are cut, sewn and pressed. So here's to hoping all my seams were the same.. LOL

I had to put the HST stuff away as it was starting to drive me batty. I'll pick up on that another time. But have a bunch made.  I sewed some of the 1.5" ones into Flying Geese.  I'm thinking about making either a doll quilt or maybe a baby blanket. I also have a bunch of 1.5" HST sewn into little tiny pinwheels.  A lot of those are in patriotic fabric leftover from the QOV fabric.  Who knows what will happen to them.

But so goes our lives.  or as I say:  And JUST LIKE THAT, we became prisoners in our own home.  Freedom is fleeting if one lets it get away. This too shall pass.  

Oh and to torture me even more... my treadmill started screeching like a banshee so I stopped using it until my handyman comes.  He's going to fix a couple of chairs too.   THEN, my hair is growing at a really fast rate and of course my friend's shop is closed.  I teased her that "I was getting married in two weeks and needed a cut.  She replied that she would leave a pair of scissor on my porch with photos of how to cut it! " I love a good sense of humor.

That’s a great idea! I need to go though mine and see if I have any fun ones to make a doll quilt for our FIRST granddaughter due in August. (Probably the last too, our DD will be 41 in October).  
She is wanting me to make her some top knot hats from knit fabric.  

I agree:  we quilters are lucky!  I have a neighbor who has no hobbies ... she's going crazy.  She has finally resorted to in-depth spring cleaning to keep busy.  She was asking me if I'd started spring cleaning.  I answered that when I run out of fabric and thread (which isn't going to happen anytime soon), I might give it some thought.  In the meantime, I'm just doing the normal housework, and getting back to quilting as soon as I can.

Hope you'll post a photo of the 2018 mystery soon.  I never do them myself, but I love to see what other quilters do.

My hair is getting out of control too ... might consider doing a bit of a trip myself ... we'll see!

Keep safe!
