Appliqué petals

I have never attempted machine appliqué before so this weeks assignment for the Irish Chain Twist quilt along was a first for me, and once I got going I loved it!!  I used a blanket stitch,  a blending colour of thread and quickly settled into a rhythm that I felt comfortable with.  I even found myself thinking "this is great what else can I machine appliqué !!"
Here's my appliquéd petals

Tomorrow I'm off to a fund raising quilt exhibition at nearby Manston and will be meeting up with quilting friend Imelda - hope there's some cake to be had whilst we catch up about our latest projects!! Imelda went to Duxford quilt show recently and did a workshop with Sally Holman. So I'm longing to hear all about that and the lovely Kay called in on the St M's quilters today with our orders from Quiltique in  Vegas.  I've been slowly collecting some lemon and greys for a quilt I want to make here's what I've got ......

It's been a busy week catching up and I managed to layer and pin my stacked squares quilt top ready for quilting. So watch this space for a quilt finish .......

Happy stitching .............. Jacky O
