Applique Tuesday

Shocking I know, but it is in the hoop.  I've actually hand quilted a little of my special stitch.  I call it the Morse code stitch.  Some of you will remember that I perfected this particular stitch on my Mom's quilt shown on the header.
Dot, dot, dash, dot, dash
:) :)
All that work, and it doesn't even show...yikes.  This quilt may end up on the machine, but that really scares me.
A little bit of sunshine today that made me smile.
I totally love that little print.  There is another one on the other side of the big window.
I found the prints for 99 cents each at Ikea and framed them.
I look at them everyday.  They make me happy.

Your quilt is so cute - I hope you and the quilt are able to work things out so that you can finish hand quilting it.

Your applique piece is great and I love that hoop.I haven't seen one like it before (not that I've done a lot of hoop shopping). Well done!

Very pretty BB... I just love this appliqué.... The bird and the flowers are so pretty. It's nice to adopt the morse code quilting technique... Takes the pressure off perfecting things otherwise! Teehee... Have a wonderful day !
