I am not especially fond of applique. I am more likely to want to spend time doing other things. However, my friend, Ann, suggested we finish this project started about 2 years ago. This is just the applique part. Some of the piecing has been done, however, the applique slowed me down somewhat.
So, I decided at the end of May I would work on this hand project whenever I would go to the park with my boys, or have quiet sitting and waiting time. I finished it last Tuesday! We had sewing day on my front porch, and I continued for the next half hour, and finished. I actually only went to the park with my boys one time during the project. So, I will be working on getting the rest of it finished over the next month. It is nice to be done with the applique. I'll post the finished project later.

I sent my mini quilt out last week, so I think it is safe to post this. You are seeing double, because I made 2 of them. I gave one away to Rachel in Ohio, and the other will be hanging in a local quilt shop soon. I wanted to have one for me because I really fell in love with it.
Here is a close up of some of the quilting. I think my favorite part is the wavy lines in the pink path.
Here is the one I kept for myself. It turned out pretty good, huh? I actually put labels on both of these, which is not something I do often enough. I think I will do it more, now that I know a good way to label a quilt. Let me know if you like it!

Today I received a fabulous mini quilt from Sandie. I just had to show it to you here. Aren't the colors just beautiful? I finished the quilt today that I will be sending off tomorrow. I will post a picture after that. We don't want to spoil the surprise for Rachel.
I am working on several projects right now, but mostly for customers. I hope to get them done soon, so I can work on some classes I took from an online group. We'll see how the summer develops.
