Fused Happiness

 Even though I may have 14 UFOs, and four quilts in progress, sometimes I just have to drop everything for a new project.  I found this project in a magazine, and it was yellow flowers on a red background.  I became obsessed to make my own.  This is just my second attempt at any type of applique (made the first one 10 days ago), and I am easing into it with fused applique.

 A few years ago I watched a couple other techniques, but turned and ran as fast as I can.  Now I am thinking I may try it again.  Lately I have been interested in whimsical applique quilts and Aunt Millie's Garden by Piece O'Cake Quilts.  I am sure the bold colors initially attracted me to something that I had previously thought as uninteresting quilts.

We had beautiful fall color this year on our trees, and I snapped this one the day before the leaves dropped. We have 10 of these trees, and it amazes me how they change color and lose leaves at different times...


  1. Mary~I think it is looking very pretty! Fusible isn't so hard but hand applique makes me run the other direction! Can't wait to see it all quilted up.

  2. Looking good. It is so fun when a new project grabs us and takes us in a new direction. Your trees are amazing. I am always in love with fall and all the colors it brings us.

  3. Those centres you chose look great Mary!
    I don't do applique either, but this one might even tempt me.


I love to read your comments, truly! I will answer each one, too! Unless you are a no reply blogger...
