Been known to utter it on occasion. Occasion of appliqué that will never end...
The name of my round robin.
Here's the next round done!
"Excuse me?" you're thinking, "I thought you weren't a fan of appliqué?" Well... this idea germinated. The directions for this round were "add some words or phrases to your quilt". Oh, it had already had plenty of those flung at it! Didn't think the ladies in the guild would appreciate me appliquéing the f-word you were thinking of when you read my title. Sitting in the back seat of our car last Sunday, Dayna riding shotgun so she and her dad could yak, I let my mind free-associate for a name for the quilt. Voilà.
Apologies for the poor lighting, but again, it's darker than the inside of a cow outside. I plan to quilt "fleurs" on the other 3 sides in the same lettering, and then quilt the snot out of the surrounding so it pops.
In case it's not apparent, the centre block, my orphan block, is hand appliquéd, stitches so tiny that I doubt I could replicate them today with my deteriorating close-up vision. The four corners of appliqué is by machine, but edges turned under a scant 1/4". I did the "fleurs" letters raw-edge appliqué using a blanket stitch on my Bernina. So three different methods of appliqué on one quilt!
Next round is to add pieced curves. I might just get this baby done yet.
I'm linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday!
