This blog was created to document my journey learning to quilt by hand. However it has evolved to much more. Some of the things I blog about are: machine quilting, setting up and designing my new small home and life in general. I will add other adventures as I embark upon them.

I decided to go with the butterflies appliqued onto my mom's quilt to cover those bad places.
I am using the method shown on a video by Missouri Star Company. Some I machine sewed, then others were Hand stitched.
I then ironed them to the quilt in a random order as if they were flying across the quilt.
I have never appliqued before but so far this is a pretty easy way. Of course I have to sew them down. I will try hand stitching them but may end up machine stitching if I can't get them to look right. Wish me luck.
I haven't had much time this past weekend to work on my Cathedral quilt and probably won't this week either since I hope to finish the applique work by week' end. Enjoy your week.
