Did you think I forgot about my applique project? Absolutely not! I'm sooooo close. I work on it a little in the evenings while watching TV and I have 3 more blossoms done.
Half of this border is done so I'm 79.5% done! 5 more blossoms on this border and then I can sew the borders to the quilt and do the corners.
In other news look what came in the mail! These are fabrics for more tunics. The Ikat on the left is one that a friend gave me a few years ago. The rest of batik rayons from Sew Batik. I got almost 4 yards of the black because the next few tops I male will be color blocked. The black will go with the Ikat, the multi/black and the red/black. The two tan/black prints will be used in the same garment. I washed and dried all of the fabrics....except the Ikat. I need to do that. I want the tops to be wash and dry with no ironing. The blue one that I've made already came out of the dryer perfect. I can't wait to get started on these. Chris is on his annual golf trip this weekend so maybe I can make a couple of these in the evenings after quilt club sewing days.
Boy, wouldn't that be a perfect weekend!

Ahhh - perfect weekend indeed! Mind you, I'm pretty sure Chris might say HIS is the perfect weekend.

No-iron rayon? I didn't know that was possible. You must dry it to *just* the right point and take it out immediately!

The multi/black seems perfect for you.
