"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:

Barbara,
I was thrilled to see there will be a TQS show on Jan. 1st starring YOU and the Afternoon Delight project. I will watch it before our typical long day of football games.
What a great way to start the new year. HelenW

Thanks, Helen! I just updated my collage the other day, with a few of my favorite works. You are the first to notice—good eye.

Plan to cut background squares 8” for appliqué. They will be trimmed to the proper size after the appliqué is done.

Thank you for the hint of the block size. At the moment I am going through my stash and looking for fabrics and scraps suitable for this quilting adventure. I am taking a guess here, that we need some larger background fabric pieces for the applique blocks.

Yes, as I figure it out. The blocks are the same size, just won’t be making all of them.

Barbara, will you be telling us how to make the smaller version of this quilt, like you’re making either the red, white and blue fabric?

Thanks Barbara,

I think I am just getting antsy for it to start. I'm going to start puling scraps together for it, maybe that will help.
