100_4097-th

I've been busy on this BOM. The little quilting group I belong to is making this BOM. There are 14 of us doing this quilt. I am the only one doing machine applique, but that's all right. I was so far behind that I made it a goal to just work on this quilt alone. No dividing my time between projects. This way I can keep my machine set up with the proper thread, tension and needle. Once the prep work is done, and there is a lot of prep work, the stitching is speedy. If you are keeping count, this make block #7.

You can see the faint lines I've drawn for the embroidery. I won't be doing any of the embroidery or embellishment until after it is quilted. All the gingerbread men will need eyes and buttons and the pine boughs for most of the blocks will need to be stitched. There are other places here and there that I will be stitching too.

  4. This is so cute! ...If you would give a class on how to stay focused on ONE project, I would sign up! I think I have Quilters ADD!

  5. Stunning, as always! I, too, like to keep my machine all set up with the proper thread, tension etc. for machine applique when I can. These blocks are going to combine to make one gorgeous, masterpiece, Christmas quilt; well done, Paula!

  7. I'm hand appliqueing that BOM, too! Why do you not do the embroidery until you have quilted it? Just curious!

    Thanks
