Ooh, Suzie,

I have that book, too.  I have started some things
from the book, but they are still UFOs.  Congrats
on finishing the top.  The Puss in Bonnets is very
cute.  Got pictures?

I felt the same way about applique until I took a
class on landscape quilts.  I discovered that I like
it too.

I'm happy dancing for you across the pond.

Happy Stitching,

Egad, it's catching! I've been the same way, and I just did some
applique (by hand, even!) on a quilt for my secret pal in my quilting
circle. And MSM, who NEVER says anything nice about my quilts, actually
said "you know, that looks okay". I just about fell over! LOL

I have finished piecing the top of my friends crib quilt for when whe
has her baby early in the new year - she leaves work this Friday as
her doctor has made her take plenty of rest, hence the sudden spurt to
get it finished.

And, d'ya know, after years of saying "I hate applique, you'll never
catch me doing it" I have done 12 x 10inch blocks, each one with an
applique cat on it - Puss in Bonnets from "The Cats Meow" by Janet
Kime - and I think I am happy with the way they have turned out, so

I like applique!!!

This also means I've actually made a quilt from a pattern in a book I
bought in America a year ago, as well as using the fabric I bought
especially for it as well - Donna took us to Heirloom Quilts in
Poulsbo, where I bought the book, and the fabric came from the quilt
shop in Pike Place Market in Seattle, a pack of Aunt Grace's FE's.

Suddenly I feel very virtuous - one down, several million quilts to
go. Maybe the next few will be easy ones - 9 patch, rail fence,
something with HST's... just to get a few solid quilts under my belt
(and to relieve the strain on my stash collection...)

Join me in a happy dance - even tho its not finished yet?

Doing a two step highland fling for a happy dance. Your friend is a lucky
girl to have such a good friend and the baby will be blessed to sleep under
a quilt filled with so much love and creativity. Congratulations on a job
well done. Mocha

Way to go Suzie. Doing a rainy happy dance for you here in gloomy Seattle
(not as bad as what we got into last year, however.  Remember how drenced we
got while walking in downtown Seattle?)
I recently made a SBS block for my guild's Christmas quilt for next
Christmas.  It wasn't as bad as I expected it to be.  Rather cute, as a
matter of fact.  I guess I'll have to join you in saying "I think I like
appliqu"...at least a little bit.

Happy manic Irish jigging Suzie.  It is funny but when I first started
quilting I never ever wanted to do applique, it just didn't look
appealing.  Then second quilt in I had to make my infamous Lion King
quilt which was all applique.  Since then I've done four wall***s,
three borders, some blocks with applique and suddenly reading your post
I thought "Hey yes I do like applique", so I do understand the fellow
feeling.

Stand Tall, Be Proud, You like applique.

Your quilt sounds lovely Suzie. I must get that book sometime - I love cats.
If you think HSTs are easy think again if you're a perfectionist. I made a
lap quilt for DH with all triangles & though it looks lovely it needs the
galloping horse test as far as matching points. I started off by being fussy
& redoing seams but gave up after a while & just got on with it.  9 patches
I love - they are so versatile but rail fence was what I started of with &
gives good results very quickly. Happy sewing, Maggie

As a child I was forced to applique and hated it. Now find it is mostly
what I do! And love it!!!!! It is rewarding to see a "picture"
