Ben and Jeri

After seeing Colleen Winter's Baltimore Christmas
(yes....we had a sneak peak at quilting!)

 I have been inspired to give some needle turned applique a try.

I must say-

 Colleen's applique skills are INCREDIBLE!!

I will see if I can get a picture from her when it is quilted!!



I thought this "Ben and Jeri" by the Quilt Patch was a small enough project to attempt.



I am just rounding the bend on the first mitten and contemplating that the button stitch might be easier!!


Not sure if this was the perfect project as it is flannel

 but

 I never seem to do it the easy way.

And a lesson?!!?

 Heck..no.... I am more of a trial by MY error chick.



And mom.....

Your babies are doing well.

That self feeder is working for Jake!!




And Annie...........   


still shy and wouldn't smile for the camera!

Her nose is still out of joint for not taking her south with you!!

  1. Yes, I agree. Colleen's needle turn applique is awesome. I did try a small project. Enough for me to know that I am not good at it and would be best to stick to what I know...blanket stitch applique. Thanks for the interesting posts Christa.
