I saw Cecile’s applique blocks from the Ladies Aid Sampler hosted by Barbara Brackman and fell in love with them. You can see here’s on her blog, Patchwork Inspirations. So I decided to try a few blocks myself.
Barbara is hosting this BOM over on her blog, Civil War Quilts. You can find info about the BOM here. I will use the back basting method of hand applique. Can you see that I traced the pattern on the back of my block?
I’ve chosen my applique fabrics and I’m ready to dive in.
Wish me luck!
Good luck! I haven’t tried that method before! Hope it goes well!
Very pretty classic fabrics. I’m also doing this project and so far, also using back basting – probably my favorite appliqué method!
