Newbie!

My new quilt group - Applique Addicts, has thrown out a challenge.  And ... I accepted.  We are each going to make this quilt.  Flower Garden by Kim Mclean.


My personal challenge is to use up some batiks. I have a boxful, sitting on the shelf. It will also be a challenge for me to do hand applique ... not a sharp tool in MY quilty tool box.

I have started prepping the first blocks.


In an attempt to keep somewhat sane, the littlest pieces (or when I can't resist) will be made from wool.  I do love the mix of wool and cotton.

And yes, starting a new project was NOT on my "list" but ... well ... you know how THAT goes.
