While watching a high profile court case (no comment on the what was testified by whom or the outcome) I ordered a book. I've been admiring one particular pattern from the blog Quilting in Oz ("Dutch Treat") and just HAD to have it. I've been teaching myself needleturn applique with "The Civil War Bride Quilt" and now reverse applique with "Dutch Treat". It's a challange because the little treasures of blocks finish at a mere 4" but they're so much fun to do! I was using pencil lines but now I've started using "The Fine Line" water erasable marking pen, works like a charm!
