More finished "Afternoon Delight" blocks...


I have a few more "Afternoon Delight" (Sue Garman) hand applique blocks finished.  They are portable, so I mostly sew on them when I am away from home, waiting on some thing or another.


These will finish 6-3/4 inches.  There are 40 appliqued blocks in this quilt.


I hope to get a lot of the double nine patch and other pieced blocks for this quilt done on my retreat at the end of September.


These are just delightful and fun to do!  It is interesting and satisfying to experience my collection of shirting and repro fabrics as I sew.  When I hand stitch, I can really study what went into the design of each fabric and enjoy each one.  I think I used a different background for every block.

These one-piece designs may not be the most interesting, but they were certainly fun to stitch...just one thread choice per block for them, LOL!


I hope to prep the last block for the "Contentment" quilt today. I'm getting more and more excited about finishing that quilt.  I have an idea for the inner border and lots of ideas for the outer border. Hopefully it will come together quickly.

In stitches,
Teresa  :o)

  10. These blocks are gorgeous. I have that green print with the yellow floral on it and everytime I reach for it I think John Deere tractor and I've hardly used it. You've used it beautifully here in a couple blocks - I need to give it a chance - lol! Just love the red onepiece design block.
