When my Sunday Afternoon Applique Group gets together…look out! We laugh, we eat and we solve the world’s problems! There is no shortage of creativity and inspiration!
I mentioned to my group that I’ve hit a snag with my Roseville blocks. I love the fabrics and the block patterns, but I really want to set the quilt differently than in the original pattern. I was a little unsure how I wanted to set it, so I was in no hurry to finish the blocks. This afternoon, we put our creative minds together and came up with a plan!
Here is a sample of what I am going to do. I will applique 9 of the blocks (instead of 13) and piece together 12 “Single Irish Chain” alternate blocks. I am now “Officially Excited” about this quilt!
All of the 200 or so 2 1/2″ squares are cut. Let the stitching begin!
Oh! I almost forgot! I finished hand-quilting another block on Sue Garman’s Bouquet for a New Day.
That completes a whole row!
Til next time…

I think she did her crosshatch about twice as small as ours…maybe next time. m
Oh yeah! It is very exciting to work through a dilemma so successfully. Your blocks are beautiful! Congrats on your hand quilting progress. It’s looking fabulous!
Thanks! These blocks were driving me crazy. I didn’t want to finish them and then just have them end up on top of the UFO pile!!
