OK – only the applique, not a whole quilt top.

But I began this hand applique project while I was still in Oman, and needed something to take with me when we went back to Canada for summer holidays….. that makes it about June 2011.

Nine blocks – many pieces.  I prepared them, and have been working on them since then.  Not always, and even when travelling, sometimes I have been reading instead of sewing.  

They became my hand project for crafty-friends get-togethers in both Norway and now here in Sakhalin.  And now, they have finally been completed.

Here is the last leaf to go on…IMG_7630


And the whole nine blocks, set out in order.P1080292


I already have some of the piecing done for the sashing, so hopefully soon I will be showing you a completed top.

Until then – here is the photo in the magazine.P1080296

So excited to be this close to having it done.

    Hi Kathi,
    Your blocks are beautiful!! You know I’m not one for hand work but we are planning an RV trip to the Yukon and Alaska this summer and I had been thinking of maybe trying to do some applique. I know you did a post about the type of applique you used for these blokes which I thought looked really interesting. Do you remember which one it was?
