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.
sewbug57 answered:
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.

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!
sewbug57 answered:
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.
Damsel asked:
