Christmas Express Applique

Thank you for your camera recommendations, especially after having seen many great photos you have taken with these cameras. I will definitely have to check them out.

I purchased the most darling Christmas Express applique pattern from Holly Hill Quilt Designs at PIQF this year.  I modified it for a special recipient in mind. I think they will love it.

Choo Choo!

I used to love applique, but haven't done it in awhile. I used the freezer paper method and tried basting glue for the very first time. And there is no going back! The days with pins will not be missed! I cannot wait to stitch this down onto my new 30's reproduction background fabric from my LQS.

The weather in my area has been outstanding. I hope you are enjoying your weekend doing what you love. Talk soon.

Very cute! I too love appliqué and Roxanne's glue baste is my beast friend. I use it ALL the time, even for piecing when I don't want to use pins or on long seams. It keeps it smooth and no taking out the pins as I go.

Train looks all ready for take off. Mice look peaceful and happy and SOOO cute. Avoiding pins sounds great! Love hearing about your new adventures.
