Homestead Harvest -- Applique Complete! 4.30.17

Look!  It finally happened!  Every last circle has been carefully made and put in place.  Now I need to stitch this last set down.  The next step is that I get to put the row of HST's all around.  I need to start thinking of a quilting plan.  Ideas welcome!!!

 
Binding is one of the WORST forms of slow stitching for me.  I love to put a binding on by machine.  But some quilts call for "fancy".  Here I am putting the binding on the Underpants Project quilt.
 
 
And for all my slow stitching friends, check out the giveaway at Victorian Motto Sampler Shop!  Gorgeous floss to chose from.

I am also totally motivated by all the beautiful projects that I see each week at Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching.  Click by and check out all the other GORGEOUS projects at today's linky party here.
 
I started this project in December, 2016.  The pattern is called Homestead Harvest.  Below is a picture of the quilt I am making.  I am learning applique.  The pattern is from the book Simple Appeal, 14 Patchwork and Applique Projects for Everyday Living by Kim Diehl.

  7. Great progress! This is a hard quilt to plan for a quilting design with both applique and piecing. I have no idea what to suggest... hope someone else has ideas for you!

  9. Looks great. A suggestion is go to Pinterest and search this popular pattern and perhaps you will get ideas on how others quilted it.
