Oo-oo-oo-oo! I love flowers, especially roses and I love to look at applique, just get frustrated doing it. I will be watching to see how yours 'grows'!

I have to confess, I started out doing the fusible web "turning" method. Then realized the difficulty I was having with some shapes. After about two blooms, I switched to raw edge applique. I am much happier doing it with this method. Also it keeps it from being too thick in areas where there are layers of pieces upon each other. Also it is progressing much faster.

Velda, I love your rosebuds appliqué. It is elegant. Have fun!

This kit was given to me. Don't know how old this kit might be, but the price tag on it was $35. Must have been many many years ago at that price. You would never a full size quilt kit at a price like that in 2017. I appreciate this gift and want to do a good job to make my friend proud that she gave it to me.

VELDA, this is going to be so pretty! I'd be doing raw edge, too! I guess if we can't find you for the next year we know where you'll be! But so worth the time.

What an heirloom you are creating! It's beautiful, and you are definitely making the giver pleased!

Holy Cow!
I actually have the top done!
The fabric in the corner is a king size flat sheet. I am going to use this as backing. My thoughts are thus: even though it is not the best choice, it makes this better for me. The kit was given to me. Printed numbers all over and who knows how well they will wash out.

All quilting marks are also printed, so can't be washed until completely finished.
I didn't want to put lots of dollars into backing and batting to then find out things don't wash out clean.
I pre washed the sheet, removed hems and I like the feel of the fabric. I am sure it will quilt just fine with my sewing machine.
