Time has been spent in the sewing room this past week working on a few items - namely getting my first attempt at scappy applique to the finish line.
Once that was finished I moved onto the next step of my toucan quilt. The rectangles are now joined to the smaller squares.
Time was also spent cutting up 4" squares for my challenge quilt. A total of 96 4" squares is needed for the background fabric and a mixture of 96 4" squares from the remaining 8 fabrics. There is quite a bit of cutting to be done before construction can begin.

Back soon and in the meantime
Happy sewing all
I love your appliqué. What a wonderful piece it will be for display. Good luck with your challenge!
Your leaf turned out very well. Enjoy playing with your other projects.
love the leaf applique, very unique and a great way to use up little scraps. Is it raw edge applique/stitching?
YOu have lots of great and colorful things in the works here. The Toucan fabric as well as the reds are so pretty. I will have to check out what you are doing with those squares.
The leaf is so beautiful. I love the variety of fabrics that are so cohesive together in the leaf.
Prep work can take a while but so fun when its doen and its time to sew.... I do like the look of your leaf.... and looking forward to watching the other projects grow...
Love your scrappy applique. Cutting sometimes seems to take forever but js so worth it once you can start to sew. Looking forward to seeing toucan progress.
