Applique Finished!


How do you spell relief?  All the pieces are in place now.  I still need to do the top-stitching, which will take me a day or two, I imagine.  That will help define the pieces and give them some texture.  After that, I'll need to make about a zillion little two patch units for the checkerboard border.  Then I'll be ready to assemble the blocks, and that will require constructing a checkerboard sashing.  Lots of work left to do on this, but the part I was dreading is all finished.  I'm so happy about that.

Gracie was my excellent helper.  She kept the pattern from levitating.

It took me a minute to get the levitating comment - then I had to chuckle - what is it about cats and paper anyway? I so admire other people's applique pieces and this bright floral is so very pretty. Can't believe you are done already. I know I saw the pics of you starting just a couple of days ago.
