Finally! Something accomplished, although it's not much it's a start back in the right direction. It took all day to get the 12 background squares cut and the
Dresden's glued down , then ONLY one block completely stitched down to the backing.
The free pattern for Cherry Blossom Marmalade block can be found in the tutorials tab at the top of the blog and on the right hand side of my blog.
Two different colors for the background....that teal isn't as dark as it looks here.
And it's showing through on the white, darnit! So after it's stitched down I'll need to cut away the backing.
Hand applique? Heaven NO! Its invisible machine applique.
Here's a couple of tutorials for this method. Here and here. If my eyesight were better and my glasses newer I could probably go even narrower on the tiny blanket stitch.
I'm using an invisible thread to stitch every thing down.
A few months back with my Joann's 50% off coupon I purchased Signature Invisible Thread. What a great find and deal! This thread also great for SITD quilting. I've actually quilted an entire quilt with nothing but this thread.
Today I'm linking up with two new to me bloggers.

Thanks for stopping by my little place in Podunk!
