2016 will be the year I learn to appliqué...I will! I love appliqued quilts, but I am way too intimidated to try it.
This year I have made sure I am part of different projects that all include appliqué - because then I can't avoid it :) I didn't know The Splendid Sampler would be one of them, but why not?
Jen Kingwell designed this block, and I loved making it. It's a little wonky in places, but for a first try I would say it is ok.
