hi QuiltDragon--yep--a half-dozen BA blocks should just about fill a recovery period from most any surgery!! How blessed you are that it's a knee and not a hand!! What a great excuse to sit and stitch!!
A big second yep--Margaret Docherty and all 3 of her books are tops of my fave list for applique--her techniques and attention to detail take one's breath away when you see the quilts. She's a pediatric Dr. in England--she quilts to relax!

Nancy - checked out the ones on your list....I did like Beautiful Blooms and Winter in the Garden. Because there are only so many flower designs in print, it's almost impossible to come up with new ones. The "Winter" patterns looked alot like those of Nancy Pearson http://www.televar.com/grshome/Rainyday.htm. Check them out...Barb

Nancy, I haven't heard of any of those, but since floral applique is my fave, I'll have to check them out. I've been looking through my applique books to finish the anniversary quilt designs and found I have 19 - mostly by Elly Sienkiewicz and I have an extensive collection of Nancy Pearson patterns. Othe books you may want to check out are:

Little Brown Bird Patterns, Margaret Docherty
Red and Green, An Applique Tradition, Jeanna Kimball

I don't tend to do flowers much, but a couple of those BOM's were really cute.

I went & dug out a few applique books & patterns, I have been collecting, from my stash. Wanted to post them here, to see if some of you have them too, & see what you think of them, just curious? Haven't played with any of them, as of yet, as applique is still pretty new to me, but love the styles in some of these!

"Beautiful Blooms" by Susan Taylor Propst

"Delightful Quilts in Bloom" by Mary Ross & Barbara Scheu

& "Mimi Dietrich's Favorite Applique' Quilts".. all books

Patterns..."Fantasy Flowers" by Pearl P. Pereira" &

"Winter in the Garden" by Sheila Wintle

Found a few others, but mostly fusible applique, so not posting them here, lol. Have any of you done these, or have them in your stash? What do you think?...

cellogirl - when you figure that out, let me know! I'm working on finishing the block drawings for my anniversary quilt and Im using a combination of Nancy's and Elly's flowers/leaves/bows. At least I'll be able to use my hand after my knee surgery even if I can't use the sewing machine. Barb

Thanks, QuiltDragon--the bunny hill site has some really cute designs and the freebies would make a charming quilt--reminds me of the "Hop to It" book in many ways. Nancy Pearson has great designs--a friend won lots of prizes with a beautiful quilt full of her designs. There is a designer for everyone--tons of great ideas!--makes me wish for 48hr.days!!

Janet - if you go onto http://bunnyhilldesigns.com/dynamic/?page=Free%20Patterns, the patterns are right there. The pdf download includes applique and redwork. If you sign up for her newsletter, you'll be notified when the new one is available. They are small and very cute.
Diane, yes, I think that's it - it's on her main website.

That's a good thing then - sounds like she's been having cute patterns. I'll have to look for the others and see if they're archived. For some reason they look like something I may tackle....maybe because they're "cute"? ha!

Janet, Annette and I are doing the Tisket A Tasket free patterns that your friend is talking about.
QuiltDragon I have done the Quilt 'Rabbits Prefer Chocolate.' Is that the one you mean? I did it with wool on cotton.
