Applique - A Love/Hate Relationship

I have this love/hate relationship with applique.    I love to do it, I hate that it takes me so long to accomplish anything.   There are other people who are so fast and seem to have no trouble getting their all of their BOM's finished.   I can't even seem to get mine started.   But I do love it.    That is why I recently joined the TAS. " The Tallahassee Applique Society."


A group of ladies who have begun meeting on a monthly basis to share and encourage one another in the art of applique.    Some of the ladies are good at it and some of us just watch in wonder.




 That is me in the green sweater in the corner working diligently at the appliques that I have been working on forever.   I will share them one day when they are closer to being finished.    I really do enjoy it and joined the group to see if it would spur me on to complete something.    The jury is still out on that one.  We will see.

I had a never ending applique expereince four years ago. It put me off for life. I spent months hand applique-ing butterflies on a quilt for my sister.

Im finally over it and will be doing some more hand applique on a quilt next year. Good luck with yours. I think this is an art from when women had much more time than they do now. But you do get in the zone once you get started.

I know what you mean about the applique relationship ... but you have good friends to show and share with and that makes it better!

I just love applique. I never liked it before and I never thought I would like it so much. Once I did a big project, that was it. Love your square. Good job, just keep practicing.

I know!!! Applique is soo very pretty, yet.. those stiches, which are supposed to be invisible, ugh. It's one of those things in which practice makes perfect. I am banking on that! :)
