Applique Thursday June 7, 2012

I can't believe that it is June already.  The days are flying by.  I have only added a couple of pieces to my Night Before Christmas block so not much to show, but I'd thought I'd share one of my older quilts. 

Stars of Glory
"Blessed is that nation whose God is the Lord"

I finished this quilt in July of 2000.  Up until this time I had only done machine applique and wanted to learn hand applique.  So I just jumped in on a project and taught myself.  So began my love of applique and especially the combination of piecework and applique.  I think an applique border on a pieced quilt adds just the right touch. This quilt pattern, Stars of Glory, was featured in Fons and Porter's magazine and I fell in love with it.   I love the scrappiness of it.  And believe it or not, the star points did not scare me away!!  Make sure you go and visit A Quilting Readers Garden sometime today and check out some great projects and inspiration!  I love to see what all of you are working on.
