"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:

TOPIC: How Do YOU Appliqué?

How Do YOU Appliqué? 08 Dec 2019 10:36 #146423

I was shocked when a fellow guild member described me as a beautiful appliquer- It has been easily a decade since I was 'into' applique! Time to rekindle that flame. I did needle turn freezer paper, but I am always willing and eager to try new methods. I do not care as much for raw edge unless it is for a decorative quilt. I think I will like to try the new method described for the needle turn. TQS has never steered me wrong!

Hi Barbara, I have just rejoined TQS after a few years break. Life sometimes gets in the way. Wish quilting had been my paid work, but it is all okay now I am retired. This year is my PHD year (Projects Half Done) I actuall finished one of my 2009 BOMs and the other is well underway.
I, after many tries of different applique techniques, have gone back to freezer paper this works well for me. i stopped trying to find a faster way to complete things but am now concentration on just enjoying the process. Not sure if I will do the qhole quilt but I will do what I can and will just pull scraps out of the scrap draw and see what happens. Good luck everyone.

I will probably use many methods since the blocks are so different I can’t wait for 2020! (Don’t ask me where 2019 went too)
I am just thrilled about this bom
There are some blocks that require some back basting practice since I have 2 thumbs when trying this method I am currently working on a project right now that helps me practice the Sentimental stitches Sally Post one that was posted long ago and was a quilt I wanted to use this technique for.
I have also made a couple of Piece of Cake patterns such as Flourishes and Aunt Millies garden, both of those I used the no melt template method for repetitive pieces.
I have also used the freezer paper method with Good Morning the Maggie Walker pattern.
I try to match the method with the templates if it is repetitive I will use the no melt templar method with the Fabric sizing for turning under. The only thing is I savor my Fabric Sizing since we don't get it in Ontario I have to wait till someone goes to america. They quit selling it here. not sure why.
These projects that I have said I have worked on are in stages most just need the applique border but the "innards are done" applique is really a labor of love and takes some patience and time

SewLouie, we used the Print and Piece Fuse Lite for the speed of printing the patterns and doing raw edge appliqué. It served as a stabilizer for the machine stitching. I have used it for turned edge machine appliqué too. It washes out mostly so the fabric is soft after soaking in warm water once the stitching is done. I would think it would work for the starch and press method too.

Hey Barbara!
I usually enjoy the relaxation of needle turn, but am thinking I might try doing the prep work and use the starch and press method on this one. I need to go read up on the print and fuse product. Is this something you use often?

I really love this new BOM quilt pattern and hope to make it. Currently, I love back basting hand applique and will use this method when I can. I have done hand applique with freezer paper templates and that works pretty good for me too. It will so interesting to see the fabrics and colors that everyone uses and I'm really looking forward to 2020!

Barbara,
I am excited to start studying applique by googling names of quilters that design and make Baltimore Album quilts. To me, they have
a talent beyond belief. One such person is Pearl P Pereira of P3 designs. I plan to watch her you tubes and note both technique for turning
edges on tiny pieces (which a lot of her patterns have) and the tools she uses. I notice on her you tube channel she has a couple old
videos that talk thru how to for some blocks in one of her patterns. I just want to be a sponge and soak up all I can learn in the couple
months before we start Afternoon Delight. HelenW

I love applique - I use a variety of methods depending on the style of the quilt - needle turn, prepared applique with templates and starch, machine applique. I'll probably use the needle turn technique for this quilt. I was so thrilled to see this quilt as our 2020 BOM at the reveal. Afternoon Delight is a quilt pattern that I have been considering buying from Come Quilt recently, I can't wait to start the 2020 BOM. Thank you TQS
