I’ve done all I can on Michelle’s quilt–I can’t avoid it any longer–time to applique. I’ve never done this before. I used freezer paper to cut the templates, ironed it onto the fabric and then added 1/4 inch as I cut out each shape.

AppliqueHere is the first block. Not too bad, but I think I will get better with practice. I can always count on the wonderful shrinking that will happen when it is washed to hide a multitude of mistakes.
