Applique . . . how I love it!

Today my husband flew out of town for a few days and I miss him very much. Yesterday, I was telling him about an idea I have for my next applique quilt pattern design. I was able to sketch out most of it this evening and will be putting the finishing touches on it over the next few days. I am really pleased with the drawings so far and I think it could have a wide audience of interest.

I've found that one of the greatest things I enjoy about applique is the quiet time it takes. You can be in the middle of a group of excited people watching a Sunday afternoon football game and still feel the serenity of stitching fabrics in place to create a unique and beautiful result. Unique because no one will finish an applique project just like yours. I think that's pretty neat!

I'll share more on this subject later . . .
