Going in Circles

I am making good progress on my Frolic Quilt. I have half of the top completely finished. I am going to be working on the other half here in a minute. It is really turning out CUTE.

My 1st circle…not badDSC_0006

 

My 1st flower…could use some improvement.

This was my first time machine appliquéing. I almost let that fact keep me from making this quilt. I am so HAPPY that I didn’t! Appliqué isn’t that hard if you just slow down and watch what you are doing :)

I need to order my backing fabric this evening. Hopefully I will have this quilt completed in time to add to my April finishes.

The quilt looks awesome! I just love the frolic line!Do you use a stabalizer when you applique? It helps tremendously! I use Totally Stable which irons on and tears off easily. It keeps everything where it's supposed to be and helps form the stitches better.

Looking GOOD! I wondered if the applique was done as you quilted it but I see not. Why not get some backing locally and be done soon?

Love the dots, love the quilt. I just recently learned to machine applique also. Yours is coming along very nicely. You are right just slowing down helps a lot.
