Pickle Dish and Santa Applique

I've been working on this Pickle Dish quilt from a class on paper piecing with Chris Jurd.  It's one of her patterns, Pickled Lilies.  I finished the centre yesterday.  I haven't pressed it properly yet.

 I have been working on the orange peels and have 2 to go! Yay!  I also thought I'd show you a little machine and fusible applique Christmas pattern by Nancy Halvorsen that I made.  It was in an American Patchwork and Quilting quite some time ago.  This was fun and simple to make. The project in the magazine was a tea towel.  I intend to back and quilt this as is and add it to my collection of small Christmas quilts in my entrance hall over the holidays.

Lastly here are a couple of blocks for the French Bouquet quilt I have begun.  I am doing needle turn applique on the centre block but haven't touched it for at least a week.  I really want to finish the small orange peel quilt from Remembering Adelia by Kathleen Tracy.

Well I'm going to finish those last 2 orange peels tonight, I'm determined!
Happy stitching,



  1. You have been busy! Do you like foundation piecing? I love it because I get points that I can depend on.

  2. Wow have you been busy. I just love pickle dish. It's always been my favourite.

  3. I love the pickle dish and also the santa...wonderful work!

  4. I love your pickled lillies!! It looks great in red and white! I do classes with Chris Jurd too.
