What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you get an idea, put it on paper and make a quilt out of it.

I love this idea so much! Most definitely put it on paper and make a quilt. Once you've started machine applique there's no turning back, Sewbug.

Hi !! You are SO right about not being able to turn back. I am totally hooked on machine applique now. I have SO many ideas but being able to draw the things is my problem. Definitely not an artist.

What things do you want to draw? I'm not an artist either, but I'm willing to try.

Watch out 2strings, I might have to take you up on that offer. I think the one thing on my list that might prove to be the biggest challenge is a sea horse. I want one that looks whimsical and real too. I don't ask for much, do I ? lol

Hmmm...

I've just checked out google images and I found tons of seahorse clip art. I only looked at large images so they would need less enlarging. Once you have a basic outline you can simplify and alter to suit.

That is what I did too. I found 1,000's of them. One was so colorful and pretty, I made it my profile picture on facebook. :) thanks !!

thank you ... I had a lot of fun making this one. My Mama loved cat tails and I thought of her a lot while I was making this block.

Beautiful Cattails Sewbug! You did a great job designing this!

07/27/2012 Flag

Thank you, Damsel !! When I went to my stash to find a brown for them, there was a fat quarter that looked JUST LIKE cat tails that I don't even remember buying. I was delighted at that find.
