Being blessed with a bit of occasional rain kept me indoors for some much needed work.
This weekend was full of measuring and cutting- snips and strips- and a bit of stitching, too. The little squares of this jungle print baby quilt are coming together forming a pretty quilt top. Today my plan is to get the applique started, if not finished. 
I have done applique work several different ways: by hand or machine, with iron on interfacing, or with a glue stick. Due to time constraints, this quilt will be machine appliqued (with a blind stitch) using a light iron-on basting. Letters of the baby's name will lay out in a random (not uniform) pattern on the top and bottom blue gingham panels. 
Now, it's time to grab that cup of coffee and get started. What are you working on today?
