My first month on The Quilt Show's BOM is finished!!  A few of my favorite things (NOT) to applique -- lots of leaves and berries!!!  This is what the first month looks like.

And this after part of the second month's portion:
I'm loving it!!  Now to do the paper pieced lattice borders.  You can't really see it, but I have added cording between the applique block and the red triangles in the blue.  Really adds to it.  I'll try to get a better picture later.
And I've gotten Crazy Bet pieced and on Matilda.  I'm auditioning how I want it quilted.  Either feathers or the curved cross hatching.  I am definitely doing curved cross hatching in the outer triangles but we'll see what I come up with for the brown borders.  I'm just going to SID around the baskets. 

Have a beautiful day!!

  1. I love the idea of the curved cross hatching! Ok, I have never done curved cross hatching, what is your method??!!?? p.s. I loved the outer border on Barb's homespun quilt, so much that I am going to use that idea on my outer border on a Thimbleberries Picnic quilt I made 6 years ago!! Yes, 6 years! I planned on quilting it on my first la but did not know how to do that type of custom then, NOW, I just don't care for the quilt anymore, so I am planning to quilt it and get it OFF of my UFO list!!
    Thanks for the inspiration! I love your blog!
