Modern Mini Applique - Introduction

You never know when inspiration is going to strike.  It struck me the other day as I was walking past a Christmas wreath quilt along I did with Helen Godden a few years ago (yes, I keep it up all year long because I love it and my family hasn't noticed it's been there for almost two years).  The idea was that each day you free motion quilted one circle.  I thought, well, that would be fun to do for quarantine, but what?

My friend Shelly is doing a fabric postcard a day.  It's fun to watch her.  I have decided to do a Modern Mini Applique block everyday or two (I am a teacher after all and I'm still not quite sure how distance learning is going to work and function yet!)

So, here's my first block:

The Lime all stitched.  I'm using Glide thread by Hab + Dash.  This particular color name made me chuckle as it's called Kryptonite.


And the back.  I use a stabilizer so my double blanket stitches don't pucker the fabric as I'm stitching.

I hope you get to quilt today!
And stay safe and healthy!
