Applique Play

I am moving very slowly on this quilt. The repetition of doing the same thing over and over always gets to me and I don't have a specific finish date for this quilt. That and I don't even have a really solid idea of where I'm going with this one! I wonder if that's why it continually gets shoved to the back burner, because you know I still love the colors and fabrics involved in the making.
More progress on Sunburst
I did finally get all the leaves and flowers stitched down though. Finally. It pains me to start another applique quilt when this one has been so long in the making. I've already overlooked this one so very many times--am I committed to finishing it or not? Yes, I really am. Okay, prove it. hehe  Don't you just love all these internal conversations we have with ourselves?

I played around with several different ideas for more applique, drawing and cutting until I came up with a possibility that clicked. I'm not sure why as the birds seem sort of fat and sassy rather than what I thought they should like like {maybe scrawny and folksy?}. I guess my brain is stuck on simple and naive these days. Time to see how it looks in actual color and print!

  2. That one will be worth the wait. Love those trees so very much!
    Nothing wrong with fat, sassy birds. All those early worms, probably.

  17. Another very fun and folky appliqué quilt, unmistakably by YOU! At first I thought the bird cut-outs were for quilting designs. Hmm. Seeing your homemade paper cut-outs inspires me to do more appliqué.
