So I finally decided that I better actually commit to an applique project before I entirely forgot what I learned in class. This is a pattern that my mom got me a year or two ago at this quilt shop on Bainbridge. The pattern is by Beach Garden Quilts. Tonight I mostly dealt with the cutting and layout which actually would be more involved than you think when you are unsure of what you are doing. My class didn't really cover when pieces overlap each other or what part you should sew down first - but at least I think I have a plan that is going to work for me. I am pretty excited to start trying to actually sew it.
It is really getting cold out here. And quickly we are approaching my favorite month of October. I tried to get some good fall hiking photos yesterday for my homesick reader - but it was getting too late and they came out too dark. I will try again soon. The quilting doberman actually lives with 2 very bossy cats. Despite his size; they both run the house. With the cold weather, the elder kitty is starting to demand some snuggling.
