Hello everyone

Hello, my name is Kathleen and I live in N.E Oklahoma on a cattle ranch with my husband, "the man of the place".  We have 3 girls, all grown and we are soon to be grandparents, 2 boys. This quilt will be perfect for a girl and maybe next time.
I had found this book last year and fell in love with about all the patterns in it. Then I came across this blog and knew I wanted to a part of it, so I asked Cookyblue if I could be put me on the waiting list. Then two weeks ago today she emailed me to let me know I can join if I wish. Boy would I, and so I got busy getting caught up. So this is what I have so far and my goal is to have them all finished by the end of the month.

















They are ready to applique. I do a lot of needle turned applique but I am trying to catch up so I 'm going to do invisible machine applique. On  my blog I have  a tutorial on how I do it if you are interested. It will look like needle turn. Then after I get them stitch down I work on the embroidery work.

Till next time
Kat
