  11. I've subscribed to your You Tube channel. One of my quilting goals this year is to get a lot more comfortable with my applique methods. Thanks!

  12. Jennifer, I have downloaded this first block and I have started getting the pieces ready to work on. I have to tell you though, that I have always loved applique quilts, but due to health issues that affect the feeling in my hands I haven't been able to do much applique except the largest pieces and then I couldn't do it with a finished edge. I always had to use the fusible method and then blanket stitch by machine, or when I could, by hand over a raw edge. I watched your tutorials today and using what I have available here at home I already have several of the pieces completely prepped already glue on to the background. Your method is so wonderful and has opened up a whole world of beautiful applique for me...though I know I will still be somewhat limited, I am so excited to finally be working on an applique project with finished edges. Thank you so very much for your wonderful explanations and demonstration Jennifer. I've watched more tutorials than I can count but yours are the first that showed 'painting' the spray starch on the 1/4" allowance then pressing it down. What a difference it makes!!! I had the paint brush and spray starch here and glue here, but I had to use a plastic handled crochet hook for the Applique Stiletto and my big iron...but I managed and I can't wait to start stitching things into place, hopefully tomorrow after church. I'm hoping too I can get a good stiletto and a Hobico Iron or at least a smaller iron, sometime in the near future as I'm certain things will go even faster when I have the right tools. I'm sure they will be easier on my hands too, but still Jennifer, I am over the moon excited to be doing this BOM. I can't thank you enough. OH!!! and thank you so much for making the blocks free downloads. I love cottages so much, but I would not have been able to do this BOM had I been required to pay the monthly fee. Thank you again, BIG HUGS comin' to ya'. Have a blessed remainder of the weekend. **PS...I love that you do some of your tutorials in your PJ's because I always sew in my flannels. I have several pairs set aside just for sewing days. Hugs...
