WIP Sunday: Happy New Year!

I've decided to continue with my WIP Sunday posts even though Christmas is over and the gift making frenzy is done. I find it motivating to share things I'm working on.

If you read the last post I was in a panic at how to get the applique to work for my little sister's Birthday quilt. After posting on Craftster in the help thread for quilter's someone gave me some great advice. I was told to use heat and bond lite and it worked wonderfully!
Appliqued Block 2
I managed to get all eight blocks aqqpliqued. I had only 1 pucker, but with a bunch of ironing and some best press it looks like it going to be fine. Here is one more of my fave blocks.

Now I just have to finish 32 more pieced blocks and start assembly! I need to have it to the long arm quilter sometime next week so I can get it bound before the Birthday! Nothing like cutting it close! I know she'll love it and she's getting a new bed so this will be her new comforter.

Happy New Year everyone. Here is to crafting up a storm in 2011!
