Passion 48 Hour 9, 10, 11

Three hours it took to piece the squares into a  quilt center.

The outer borders will be added after I have completed the applique.  Looking at this quilt "in the making".... I tell myself there is a two color quilt in my future.

I always think about it but kind of feel I would get bored before finishing it.  Looking at this I tell myself it would be worth the fortitude to finish the project. I tried getting creative with the photos -- but the one thing about sunny winter days in the U.P.---- wind chills get rough.

Here are the fabric colors for the applique.

They are a little different than the pattern picture.  Muted tones work better in my home and I plan on using this quilt for years to come. I hope to get the applique pieces cut out today.

 The designer machine appliqued hers --- I'm still kicking around how I will pull mine together.

It's sunny and 3 degrees right now heading for a high of 19. I'm not going to complain-- it could be worse...and has been.

So very nice, Melanie. What a great quilt. I can't wait to see the appliqué.

I love muted tones in my home too. Everything gets toned down just a bit :)

Applique will certainly add a lot of 'oompf' to that beautiful quilt - can't wait to see it!
