    Cool I Don't Know If I've Got It But... I'm Flaunting it Anyway!

    This was forced fun. I've always admired appliqué - but from a distance.

    This venture was borne out of a huge mistake. While cutting the fabric from the back after mitering a corner, yours truly cut thru the border with pinking shears..... Twice..... On the same corner..... So I made two patches and fused them to the back - and it worked pretty doggone good. That is, until I kept moving it back and forth from the machine to the ironing board. Then I noticed a very slight fray from the front. With no extra fabric to re-do the border, I was forced to cover it up with appliqué.

    Well, here it is. I've never done appliqué before. This is not perfect but I am soooo tickled over this I can't stop looking at it. It has changed the whole look of this quilt. Wow.

    It's 0200 in the morning Florida time. I'm going to let it set up before I hit it with the iron tomorrow. (I used 606 on the pieces. Not sure I really care for it but the jury is still out...) Once I do that, I'll start making the pieces for the opposite corner to off-set this.

    But right now, it's past my bedtime.

    Night Ladies.

    I think it's beautiful. Looks to me like you planned it that way and should never own up to the teeny tiny mistake.

    Ha! Thanks! But I hardly equate bravery to not having a choice. But I guess it looks good on paper, eh?
