Jacquelynne Steves is doing a super quick BOM Stating at the end of August and containing just four blocks. They are applique blocks but she says yo can piece them if you want (?). You just have to sign up for it and the patterns come straight into your email. I've done one of her BOMs before but I embroidered all the lines for the blocks then set them into a quilt from Primitive Quilts. I think her stuff is cute! Click HERE to sign up.

Thanks for the link! I'm new to applique and they look like fun blocks. I assume you're signed up? Me, too.

Thanks, Amanda.  I signed up.  It looks like a cute pattern and with only 4 blocks (they must be large blocks) maybe I can keep up!

So Cute 

I signed up too... Geesh, like I need a new project 

Looks like they are 18" blocks and it's a 54x68" quilt.

I'm thinking it would be cute scrappy, and I always am looking for places to use up scraps

YES  I'd love some...

I made a twin scrappy from homespuns and my son was sad I gave it away. So my homespun scraps have been SLOWLY accumulating till I have enough for another one.

Jackie, I will send them to you.  I have had these for years and just have not used them.  I would love to know that they will be used and put into something really beautiful.

I think I still have your address.  If I can find it in my sewing room.  Hmm, maybe you should send it to me.  Either by PM or email: fsluedeman@yahoo.com.

Going to work on my block tomorrow.  Have the applique traced and the borders made.  Someone was kind enough to cut the kit out for me I just couldn't do it with my bad hand but I am able to sew on the machine.

Yay! I'm so glad you all like it as much as I do! I just LOVE house quilts. I think I will be doing embroidery, too, Lorraine. I think your block is very sweet! And yes, a great use for scraps!

I am new to applique and had a problem with the fusible web. It's a Pellon product that I got as a prize at a quilt retreat. I'm having problems with getting the sticky side to adhere to the fabric. I got it to work on a couple of pieces then when I came back later to do some more, nothing sticks. I'm pretty sure I'm overlooking something basic but critical, but I don't know what. Anybody want to educate me??

I've never had that problem, Mari. I typically use Heat n Bond Lite for applique.  Best I can offer is to follow the instructions exactly - some want steam and some don't.  I have noticed that as they age, they can become less predictable, often requiring longer under the iron.  For the most part, I test the edge and if it is adhered well, I rarely have a problem.  If all else fails, you can stick it back down with a glue stick.  Maybe some of the others have more ideas.  Good luck and have fun with your applique.

Barb, thanks for the reply. And thanks for the tip to test the edge first. I was almost ready to give up and just toss the whole thing - - every time I cut out a new leaf or flower center to see if this time they would stick. It reminded me of the definition I heard of "insanity": doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. I did finally pull out the Washable Elmer's White glue and add some dots. I was not cutting out one more little circle! I think it must be that the fusible stuff is maybe a bit old.

Do you stitch around any of your pieces?

I always stitch around my pieces, Mari.  I am not really a fan of raw edge applique with fabric but find satin stitching tedious so usually opt for a small zig zag for those.  Otherwise I turn the edges and blanket stitch by hand.  I don't typically use any fusible if doing turned applique, unless it is a particulary large piece and then will put some in the center to help hold it in place.

I have tried to join 3 times and I never get anything from J. Steves! Did anyone else have issues trying to join the BOM?
