Thanks handstitcher. I went for my followup today and things are progressing nicely. My problem is, now that I'm feeling better, I'll probably do more than I should. I'm really trying to be good! :)

Cat Lady, I hope your husband gets better soon. I did the same thing when Randy went for 2 cardiac ablasions this spring/summer. Good thing I had more to do than sit with my phone!

Sorry to hear about your need for surgery, Quilt Dragon. Hope you recover quickly. Glad you have appliqué to help pass the time.

And I hope your husband feels better soon, Cat Lady. Good idea to have appliqué prepped for the possibility of surgery. It does make the time go faster. I like Mimi Dietrich's designs as well and have one of her books (Baltimore Bouquets) that I've used a lot.

I love Mimi Dietrich's designs.  I hope all goes well for your husband if he has surgery!

Awhile back I purchased Mimi Dietrich's Baltimore Basics- Album Quilts from Start to Finish.  I read through it and placed it on my pile of books.  My husband has been seeing a lot of doctors lately, and we are looking at the possibility of some surgery for him. After having already spent one week sitting with him in the hospital, with nothing to work on, I have decided to prep some of her blocks and work my way through the book. Some of the lessons I will follow as written. Others I will do what I am more comfortable with, especially many of her stem and bias methods.

Sometimes it is good to do a refresher course on methods forgotten and/or learn some new tricks of the trade.

Hi ladies - I've had a lot going on this summer - surgery for me and my hubby, craft shows & special orders. I have been slowly working on my anniversary quilt border blocks. I realized that I needed a bit more applique on them, so while I'm recovering from my surgery not being able to lift anything, I've been adding a couple of flowers, leaves here and there. The ones I've done still need embroidery details, so not ready for publication here, but I am working on it! :)

Good question, Annette! It's been really quiet around here. For appliqué, I've been working on my current Baltimore block and on my vintage butterfly quilt. I finished the buttonhole stitch bodies and am now embroidering the antennae. I'll be heading back to work soon, so I'm trying to get projects needing more prep time ready to go.

I have been trying to get some small wallhangings finished.  Making some decent progress too.  Now I'm getting ready to quilt a Quilts of Valor quilt that I will be awarding to my nephew Ryan on Sept 30th.  Hopefully one of these days I can get started on another applique' project!
