been procrastinating ... as always

Have the top done, been done ... lol Even added a small black inner border to it. Problem, don't have enough of the red that's long enough to go from top to bottom on the sides. Thinking of what to put in the four corners to help with this matter. Do like the quilt top, though. Will think on it a little longer, I guess.
Started another mystery. Did the 8 appliqued hearts that it calls for. Not sure if applique is my "bag" ... haha Went searching for the longest time on the net, knew dang well I had been to a blog or site or something that showed how to set up your Bernina machine for appliqueing. Found it, tried it, it worked. Didn't have the DMC machine embroidery thread they mentioned so just used the Sulky thread that I had on hand. Ann Sutton
sure does do a beautiful job at it!!! May have to get some of that DMC if I want to applique in the future ... lol That will remain to be seen.
Having camera issues. Don't know what I did to the blasted contraption but it doesn't want to take as good a picture as I think it will or have done in the past. Will tinker with it some more and cuss it out even more.

Mary Anne the quilt looks fantastic! If you don't have enough red could you piece it ... or use one of the other colors for the border? The black and white would be pretty, I think!

I think applique is an acquired taste - I know our Tina loves it - I like it when I do it, but I'll always think paper piecing first, lol!!
