APPLIQUES TIMES THREE

This past week has been filled with hours and hours of appliqués on three different projects.  
I spent some time doing the machine appliqué on my Sequoia Sampler project and also adding one of the side appliqués as well.  Unfortunately I needed a couple more Rayon 40wt thread colors to finish some of the blooms.  So I have ordered them online from Sulky and this project is now on hold waiting for their delivery. 


I pulled out my Berry and Vines runner project and began adding the second half of the fused appliqués.  This project had been set aside for a bit.  
Well I got this far and ran out of Steam a Seam, it has been ordered from Amazon and should be here some time this week.   
I must be in an appliqué mood, so I dug around and found this UFO treasure.  Fortunately I had not only save all the prepared fused appliqués, but the thread and bobbins were in the box with it ready to go. 
I have finished adding all the holly leaves, and still have a couple more berries to add.  If I can finish them off now, I could actually get this runner sandwiched, quilted, and bound.  Another old UFO done!!!!
Some of you might remember my daughter's mother duck and her 13 babies.  Well, they have grown up a good deal in these last couple of weeks.  Here they are, all 13 of them, out and about in the afternoon picnicking on the patio lawn.

  2. Hi Donnalee! Of course, those ducklings made me smile. Aren't you on a binge applique kick?!! Can I send a bit your way, just for some variety?! How cool that you kept the thread/bobbin with the project. Now that is thinking ahead. Good job. Thanks so much for linking up this week. ~smile~ Roseanne

  5. Beautiful work! I have been doing some applique on a quilt recently but not nearly as beautiful as your work. Cute ducks too.

  6. Love your work, and particularly the holly and vine runner, it looks nice and Christmassy. And it goes without saying that I loved seeing the ducklings too. Your daughter must have a big property with all these birds and animals.
