A New Project

I started a new project as part of a new class that I am taking.  It's a beginning applique' class taught by Shelley Stallard at my favorite shop, Delphine's Quilt Shop here in Gaylord.  The first class was this past Wednesday afternoon and I learned so much!  Most of my previous applique' work was self-taught and I was often unhappy with either the method or the result.  I am determined to learn needle-turn applique' and I think that I am on the road to succeeding!!  Just for fun (and because I love Smilebox), here are some photos from my first class:

I hope this Smilebox works for you.  Enjoy the weekend everyone and, if you haven't tried Applique', do try!  It will open up a whole new world for you.

  1. Love this, you clever girl!! Sat down to a late lunch and your Smilebox show!! keep 'em comin'!

  2. Beautiful! And I love your bright fabrics!

  3. oh, that was great. Loved seeing all the quilts and your fabrics are great. Have fun.
    thanks for sharing.

  4. Judy, your doing a wonderful job and I love your bright fabrics. I have this book and the DVD to go along with it. It did help me to rewatch it a couple of times.

  5. Hello Judy from Michigan your applique is very nice I don't think you will have a problem at all making the quilts you want.

    Is Delphine's on the North side of Main Street and do you enter it from a hallway? My parents were both from Gaylord and I am a native Michigander. I drove from Texas to Gaylord about 3-4 years ago. I have an aunt that lives on the corner of Wisconsin and Ohio.

  6. I'm mad about applique and it was a real treat to see your smilebox. Well done!

  7. Hi Judy! Welcome to blogging from one Michiganian to another!
    Carrie of A Passion for Applique sent us over to say hello.
    I love applique as well and I thoroughly enjoyed your smilebox!

    We were up in your neck of the woods a week ago.

    Enjoy your day and stay cool!


  8. I really enjoyed watching your smilebox show! Your applique is wonderful! I haven't tried needleturn applique yet, mostly just fuse and machine blanket stitch.
