Yesterday was Applique Club at the shop. We are doing a block of the month with the "Hop To It!" quilt by Edyta Sitar and are on month 5. Shown is my completed month 1's block, as far as I have gotten. Really behind, huh? I am machine appliquing these
At the club, I introduced Pat Sloan's Meadow Breeze mystery quilt patsloan.com. I am so excited about this quilt that I skipped working on "Hop To It!" and began this project. Months 1 and 2 have been cut out. I skipped to month 2 to begin stitching. I decided to hand stitch rather than machine stitch this quilt. Notice that I am adding bead embellishment. It really sparks it up!
