No Place Like Home
















Finally I have gotten my camera and PC to work together, it took me forever to make it work. Here are some pictures of the quilt I am appliqueing by Barb Adams and Alma Allen. The name of the book is Home Sweet Home, it has two versions of the quilt , one by Barb Adams and one by Alma Allen, I am doing the one by Alma named No Place Like Home. There are nine blocks and I am working on my sixth one. Here are some pictures of the ones I have finished (if I can make this work)

Yea!!!!!!!!! I did it.

Congratulations on your new blog. I too love applique but do not do a lot of it. I am currently working on an applique block of the month so that has my mind spinning as to what I could do next. I do love your no place like home applique. Keep those pictures coming.
