  6. Oh I cannot wait. I saved all of LE but had to put it away after the first few month becasue taking care of my m-i-l I knew I would never be able to concentrate and get her done right. So maybe something more easier at this moment in time would be wonderful. I do plan on doing my LE though just not now.....Thanks Ester for all you fo....

  8. Beautiful! I have been looking for the perfect pattern for a blue and white appliqué quilt and this is it! Will you be giving tutorials on your blog for this one, I am stumped by those points in the circle? Do you suggest piecing them or just appliquing the blue parts? Thanks for another wonderful design.

    1. I hope to, but realistically I won't be making it in turn with the group. Much like I'm only making Lily Rose right now, months later. I suggest creating a 'ring' of blue fabric (cutting away the middle) much like I have shown on my Lily Rose oval frame post. It's the same technique, just smaller.

      Then I would applique all the triangles using fussy cutting to save me piecing the tiny inside diamonds (or embroiderer them). Then I would extra carefully put them down, gluing with Elmer's glue as I went, to get them into place.

      You could also create the blue ring and then embroider with thicker wool thread on top, stitchery lines if the applique seems too daunting.But I do think all that small fussy work will really pay off if you stick with it. This is one of those quilts that wants to show off, so the details are especially important.

    2. Thanks, I will have to think on this for awhile as I was imagining appliquéing all the blue triangles, and then adding the white circles. Then appliquéing all the blue diamonds and finally embroidering the inner line. Hmm, I may have to make some trials to see what will work best for me. Loving this design!

  12. This is really pretty, and I hope to make it. I joined your yahoo group and need to figure out how it all works. I'm trying to find the spot to click on to sign up to follow this blog, but have not found it.

  13. I really love your design and would like to make this! I'm not really an applique-er and when I do bits of it I don't really enjoy it. I probably need to take a class to gain a greater appreciation and love for it. I probably shouldn't tackle such a big project with my attitude.

    1. That's interesting. Personally I think you should only makes quilts that 'call out to you'. If you're not keen on applique, why not try raw edge applique or stick with piecing? I'll be releasing several pieced quilt patterns this year, so who knows, you might just find something that appeals?

  14. Hi Esther, just upload a pic, sorry I did no comment. I was born in Delft, 79 years ago, and now living near the Belgian border.
    I only make the center bloc as a wallhanging.
    Thank you for the beautifull pattern.
    Many greetings, Jacqueline .

    1. Delft, how fitting! I think you may be the first person to have completed a project with this pattern Jacqueline!

      I just love how you made the centre plate 'your own' by turning it into a wall hanging, it's just beautiful and I'm completely in love with it. I think your touches of embroidery really made it extra special too. Thanks so much for posting images of it for us all to enjoy in the YahooGroup, I was so excited to see it - and so soon, you sure are fast! Thanks for sharing your talents with us...

  16. I've got some of my fabric, and working on the rest, plan to start this quilt in the coming weeks. It's the perfect combination of BLUE, applique, patchwork, and embroidery possibilities. Hoping to figure out how to share photos in the group :D
