A Little Bit of Applique

A few teaser photos of what I'm working on. I can if real life doesn't get in the way show you at least a finished top by weeks end.

I have been chasing a squirrel this past week or so. I have been intrigued by New York Beauties and some day I may make a traditional one, but not now. I've taken the idea on a bit of a ride. I had no clue where I was headed when I started.

there's something wrong in this photo
My seam ripper got to come out and play, not that I really wanted it to. And of course we never notice these little flub ups until the piece is all stitched..grrrr...

applique tools

This project requires a small amount of applique. My threads of choice are both by Superior Threads. Monopoly and Bottom Line pair so well together, especially when I don't want the stitching to steal the show. As you can hopefully see in the above photo invisible stitching. Perfect!

As these are larger appliques I choose to cut away the fabric behind them. My tool of choice is my duckbill scissors no danger of cutting into the applique with these.

That's all folks for today, you''ll need to come back later to see more. Speaking of later, come back on March 12th for the 'Text-it' Blog Hop. There will be giveaways.

NY Beauty is one of those projects that I always see at Quilt Shows, enticing me, challenging me. So I am sure you were drawn to it too. I am sure it will be delightful, whenever you are ready to share it.
