Last night was the 2nd club meeting and I was the only one that did not have the applique completed for month one... I was a little sad but in due time it will all be completed.
After the meeting, I met with Evelyn to show me how to applique. It was great, I learnt so much, but I will see how much is retained when I start this big applique project...I have signed up for her class on April 4th so I will be doing this there with her supervision just in case I go really wrong. This piece has to look perfect as it is the center of the quilt and I don't want to mess it up.
In the club we got our 2nd pattern - GUESS WHAT!!! this has applique as well - Orange Peels.... So from what Evelyn taught me yesterday, I have decided to get my templates and everything organized for this applique.. This might be my practice applique.
The pattern only calls for 2 blocks that are not applique so I will get those done and out of the way and then start on cutting the blocks for the Orange Peels (a little big and then I can down size). We have to make 24 blocks of Orange Peels that is 96 Orange Peels that have to appliqued in ONE MONTH....I don't think that I will have this done for club but I will have a good start.
