"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:

Hi "callenderquilts" - thank you for the ScanNcut option ! I’ve done some homework and sent the blocks to CanvasWorkSpace on Pc. I finally managed to cut out the appliqué shapes to my ScanNcut - using Heat&Bond lite. Will also make a second version with Wash-Away Applique Sheets for blocks 1&2.

I like C Jenkins heavy freezer paper, precut to work in your printer. I find it works very well for applique. I order mine from Missouri Star Quilt Company. 50 sheets for $8.25. You can also order it from Amazon. I am almost out of the C Jenkins freezer paper. I will order the CutRite and try it too.

I am not very good at posting pictures. Here goes.

I'll have to order some from Amazon. Joann's doesn't carry it, nor does the next quilt shop over from mine. I wouldn't mind ironing two sheets of the thinner stuff together to get the right thickness, but it doesn't even stick to the fabric. Thanks for your info, I appreciate it! Kathy

Kathy,

www.amazon.com/Cut-Rite-heavy-freezer-paper/dp/B01N5I4XAB

This is the brand I used. My local quilt shop carries it, those working with wool like it.

Some are asking about heavy duty freezer paper. I use freezer paper sheets that fit through your printer from Traditional Primitives. Missie Carpenter suggests printing your design and then ironing two sheets together for her starch method of English paper piecing, but I use this same method for applique. traditionalprimitives.com/premium-freezer-paper/

Barb, you mentioned heavy duty freezer paper. I just got some Reynolds freezer paper but it is very thin, much thinner than my old roll, and it doesn't stick, at least to the loose weave fabric for the leaf appliques on Sizzle. Where could I find heavy duty freezer paper? Thanks, Kathy

I see that Amazon has Cut-Rite heavy duty freezer paper sheets, pack of 25 sheets that states it is 3 times heavier than regular freezer paper. There are other freezer papers that come in sheets, most of their review say that they are thin. Is the Cut-Rite the product you used?

Thank you for the quick reply. I have been a bit frustrated because for the first time in over forty years, I had to have a repair on a sewing machine. Got it back, and it was great for two days. Took it again, and had one blissful afternoon of sewing. Yesterday, it wouldn’t turn on at all. Thankfully, I have a decent backup machine and could make two shoe fly blocks today.

Jean, try different products/methods to see which you like best. I just made one of the blocks by hand appliqué using heavy duty freezer paper as the templates. No reason to stick with the same product throughout.

I am waiting for the Quilters Select Print and Fuse. I ordered it immediately after watching your show the morning it was posted. Alas, it is back ordered. I guess I should use the same product for all of the appliqués?? I have started with the shoe fly blocks and have four made so far. Any thoughts?

I'm working on the borders for Sizzle, tried both the freezer paper turn back method and the wash away stabilizer method to see how those went. When I went to my supplies, I discovered I was out of freezer paper! My local grocery store doesn't stock freezer paper any more, nor does my local quilt shop. The quilt shop owner suggested going to another grocery store, who had some generic brand freezer paper that I bought. On opening the package, it was very thin and didn't work so well. Amazon had Reynolds freezer paper for 9$ a roll, but I found it at my local Target for under 4$ a roll!! Yay! I do like the freezer paper method for larger easy shapes and will sew down the appliques using a straight stitch. Happy sewing, Kathy

Mailmanldy, I can really relate to your post as a retired mailman's wife, I too plan to finish the 2009 BOM before I start this one. I'm anxious to get started, but decided to practice the discipline to finish one before starting another. The applique on the borders of the Sizzle quilt turned out OK, so I will probably use the same machine blanket stitch on this one. I too am planning to use my own fabric.

I have done a lot of applique. My favorite method is freezer paper and glue the edges so it is prepared for hand applique. I also love using heat and bond with hand stitching. New to me was Misty Fuse. I know its been around a while and I did try it but discarded the idea. Recently, Sue Pelland came to our guild and gave a demo on the Misty Fuse, I gave it a try. There is a learning curve but after completing two blocks using the Quilters Select and then trying the Misty fuse, I like the way Misty fuse finishes better. it's just me. I do a hand button hole stitch as I have better control of the stitches. I did make that cutting template for marking my corners and it makes it VERY helpful.

I am a former die hard needle turn applique'r; however, I tried Apliquick method and love it. I will use my ScanNCut to cut out the Print & Piece Fuse Light. I do not like Apliquick method for more than 3 layers of applique due to the thickness, but for one or two layers it works great.

Since I started quilting, I have avoided any patterns that had applique. Over this past year, I have finally started doing some smaller projects with raw edge applique and found that I do enjoy most of the process. I'm not sure which method I plan on using for this quilt, and not sure I want to use different techniques in the same quilt. I will probably go with raw edge, since that is what I am most comfortable with, although taking the time to turn under the edges, and then stitching down by machine may be my next choice. I know I won't do any hand work, as I'm not good at getting even stitches that way.
I started the 2009 BOM this year, and still have a couple more months to finish on that one, and will probably not start this one until I get that one completed. My plan is to use what fabric I already have, so it will be scrappy, although I might need to get more neutrals or lights, as I don't have a lot of those in my stash.
