"Afternoon Delight" was one of Sue Garman's favorite patterns. This wonderfully scrappy quilt is truly a delight to make with its combination of simple appliqué and Double Nine-Patch blocks and modified Shoo Fly blocks. Each month you will work on pieced and appliquéd blocks, and in the final month, you will assemble the blocks and add the outer border. The finished quilt measures approximately 86 1/2" inches square.

Let's use this Topic "Afernoon Delight Show and Tell" as a place to show off your beautiful blocks. That way, you know where to come to see what everyone is doing.

The topics that apply to each month are a good place to ask questions or make suggestions for each block.

AND when you post your photos to Social Media, like Instagram, Facebook, etc., use either of these hash tags so everyone there will be able to find our wonderful work:

Just a question about notifications. I am receiving several copies by email of the same notice from this group . I do want to receive notifications but not the same one multiple times . Did I do something wrong ? Is there a glitch ? Anyone else having this issue ? Maybe I should’ve made a new post ?

Cindy,
I don't think any one else is going to even notice the mistake once the entire quilt top is finished. I think we are our own worst critics. We see all the flaws, because we look at each individual block, as we are making the quilt top, not the entire top. However, if the mistake is something that will bother you, now is the time to fix it, before you get that block sewn into the quilt top. I don't think there is anything worse than having your top all together, and seeing a mistake in the middle of the quilt, and having to rip out an entire row or two, to get to it. But honestly, your mistake isn't something that is going to jump out at any one once the top is complete. Keep up the good work!!!

Donna, every month is "builders choice"--I love that description! Each month is independent of every other. Pick how many B's and P's called for, usually 6 of each for each month. That way you can select fabrics based on the specific applique designs each month. Your Block 1 looks good--I still have to get mine done.

Question for you. Your month 1 instructions say to pick three background fabrics b1 thru b4. Same with prints p1 thru 6. Do we need to remember the color choices we made for
following months? Or is every month a builders choice?

Yours look great. I had do re-do both my first blocks, because I missed that the four patch have a direction. :huh:

Thank you for the cut 8” square suggestion/reminder. The first tip of what I anticipate will be many as we all tackle Afternoon Delight together. So happy you are our TQS cheerleader/champion. Cheers! -terri in Cape Coral FL
