I have a Indigo Bunting coming to one of my feeders now and it is so pretty that I can't help thinking about working an appliqued one or more into a quilt.
Does anyone know of a pattern for one???

Oh Karen so glad you are going to do it...can't wait to see your first return to applique

Good girl, Karen,
We'll all be interested to hear about your progress.
Since you said you have done needleturn in the past, you already have the basic knowledge and you're going to love it once you get back into the rythm of doing it again.
Keep us posted.

Thanks for the advice. I think that is what I will do. I know that the longer I put off starting, the worse I am feeling! Tomorrow after work I am going to start a block!

Karen you may want to do a sample block to build your confidence. one of the easier blocks and then you can use it later as a medallion piece in another quilt.. that helps regulate your fingers into working with thread and fabric again.. just another idea..

Karen, just jump in and get stitching. If you worry too long, you'll never start it . Remember...its only one stitch at a time, no matter whether it's a "Primitive" style quilt or a "Baltimore album". Just get going....you'll find it isn't nearly as intimidating if you do. If you need help, just ask.

Thanks, Cellogirl, for letting us know that Patricia Cox is at Quilt Festival. I'm very interested in purchasing some of her patterns when I go to Houston in 2010, so will look for her then. Hope she's still doing it by then.

Hello Needleturners. I am joining this group because I have not needleturned in quite a while (ok, maybe years), and I have recently started an Arizona Centennial Quilt that is done in the Baltimore Album Style. I only have 3 years to get it finished (it is a block of the month at a Tucson quilt shop), and I seem to be having cold feet starting it. I am hoping to be inspired by this group!

Here is a perfect sampler Civil war and it is a perfect take me with you project. I would get the patterns as soon as you can cause she only leaves them on for so long and then they go in her online shop. They would go perfect with CT's New fabrics that are out right now.. frosty's

hello Needle turn appliquier's..I am new to your group and absolutely love applique. I am currently working on a couple of applique projects and have been quilting about 20 years.
My list of projects that keep switching in my bag and in progress are
Aunt Millie's garden- by Piece of Cake Designs (they have wonderful patterns even for the the beginners I saw there were many beginners and looking for good applique advise)
Country Sunshine- Black Bird Designs book is called Your Invited another easy applique pattern
I am collecting a few to get started on as well from Stitch n Heaven BOM in Texas ( I live in Toronto Ontario)
White Work, Heartland, Love Letters.. you can find these on their site they are beautiful. I love to applique but will piece something up inbetween to feel like I got something done....LOL applique is a long process and I only hand quilt my applique pieces. I figured that way I can get a really good look at them as I put in my stitches.
Well off to go view your wonderful albums and see what you have to show in applique. If you would like to see my blocks I have a blog.
http://www.patchworksanity.blogspot.com You will see my blocks slideshow for Aunt Millies Garden on the sidebar..
Thanks for letting me be a part of the group hope to share and show with the lot of you.
