My first two blocks!
Hi everyone, Firstly, a big thank you to Lizzie for helping me join you all! I have really enjoyed looking through all of your blogs and particularly looking at your wonderful work, what a talented group you are! I am new to quilting and have never attempted applique before, although I have wanted to for some time. I saw the Civil War Bride Quilt at the quilt convention in Melbourne and decided immediately that one day I would make it. I didn't think it would charm me the way it has, but it must have some kind of magic about it because I have already started. I am only using raw edge applique for my blocks (I hope this doesn't mean I'm considered to be cheating!?!) I am just too impatient!! I am also using a different colour palette - hope all you lovely experts approve. Love Willowmere Karen
