When I was looking at things on the net the other day, I noticed that the author, Nancy Brenan Daniel has another book out - it's called something like 101 Applique Blocks and it appears that it has many of these same blocks in it. Will check that one out for sure, although I have an abundance of patterns! I love them, though, so what the heck, right?
Here's an inside page and it shows the one I am working on now - the cute little shoes. Just perfect for fusible applique and buttonhole stitch.
This is the first block - I stuck it on my ratty little portable design wall to take it's picture but it does the trick. I found the pretty white on white dots at Joann's. Love it. These will be done on point and I'll find some way to border them or a block to separate them - haven't figured that out yet. (Click to enlarge)
