Hand Quilting Fun

I am really enjoying my Simple Folk appliqué. The pattern is easy to follow and I am making quite a bit of progress. It’s hard to believe that I was able to finish six more blocks!

I am very pleased with the fun colors of this quilt. While the colors are bright, they are slightly muted in tone.

It is amazing to me how easy appliqué is becoming. I have always been so intimidated with the idea of all of the little pieces. But now, I love it!

It is really hard to pick a favorite block because they are all so cute. I especially like the flower blocks. Does that surprise you?

But the reverse appliqué of these hearts is very interesting and fun as well;)

I have finished 11 blocks with 13 more to go. I doubt I will get 6 more done before our next update. I am working on my Delilah quilt and a few other small non-quilts projects that I will be posting about in the near future. Here are all of my finished blocks minus one that I couldn’t get to fit.

Aren’t they pretty?! Each block is a miniature quilt of its own:)

  1. Hi Tracy ~ oh this is just delightful! Makes me smile from ear to ear. Your work is beautiful. This has a real Dutch feel to me for some reason. Hard to pick a favorite too but I seem to like the single flower one with the tear drops off of the green curved line. ~ Sharon

  2. Hi Tracy! What fabulous fabrics for this hand quilting project. I have always enjoyed doing hand work, and appliqué pieces are right up there at the top. I’m curious as to how big these blocks are? With 24 blocks in total, they must be fairly good sized. Really, really nice job! ~smile~ Roseanne
