To Hand Applique or Not


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.

Welcome to the world of blogging. Nice to see another British Columbian.

Very pretty block. Lovely fabric. Is that the Moda Chocolate fabric? How many blocks will there be when finished? It will be a lovely quilt - I think if the pieces are larger and easy to machine applique it is much nicer to get if finished quicker and enjoy it.
