My second class for Birds of a Feather quilt was on Sat. The biggest concern for everyone was which method to applique, do you hand applique or machine applique? Of the 4 of us in the class 3 are machine appliqueing and 1 is doing it by hand. Everyone had the same reason for doing the applique by machine and that is because we all already have 2 or more projects started by hand. This will be my first attempt to machine applique, I hope I'm going to like how it turns out. Here's my first block done.
