"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:

Yes I’m aware of that Barbara. For me it came out of not really keen on the appliquéd blocks. I was firstly going to do some that I liked (when surgery can start again I have to have both big toes fused and I thought it would get done then). But then I decided no. I have three epp projects that I’m currently working on plus knitting and I decided that would be enough.

And I’m pretty happy with my decision.

A wonderful idea to split the blocks between two quilts! The first "half" is beautiful!

DianeRoss,

Your blocks are beautiful. Are they needle turned?

Would you be able to share how you insert a large photo of your blocks in the body of your submission as opposed to as an attachment?

Thanks Ckewing3901. Yes, I'm doing needle turn applique on most of my applique blocks. I've used buttonhole stitch on the turned edge of some of the more intricate blocks, but these are all needle-turn. And I see Barbara gave directions for inserting.

HelenEllice, Sue Garman called this “Omigosh” and her website sells a pattern for it. It works well!

pcquilterfl, If I had the hand quilting skills I would probably do a combo of both hand and machine. Without knowing your skills, my first
thought would be to stabilize by machine with stitch in the ditch in the diagonal lines made by the blocks. Then you could machine stitch a line directly down the points of the 9 patch that give
the secondary design. Do that both horizontally and vertically. A variegated thread that has the small square colors in it might look good for that. Since the blocks are only
6 and 3/4 inches that would probably be enough quilting if quilting isn't your favorite part of the process. But since you hand quilt, you could take your time and use the
quilt after stabilizing and also continue quilting the applique blocks with echo quilting around the motifs by hand or free motion.

You could also do a little hand quilting in the blank background squares in the double
nine patch blocks. I plan to quilt mine in sections of about 9 or 12 blocks at a time using the quilt as you go method. I will probably audition some different ideas on clear preview
paper before I actually start. Never to early to start thinking about it. Would love to hear what you decide to do. It will be beautiful I am sure. HelenW

SnowCat - I love the idea of making two smaller quilts instead of one big quilt. I honestly don't need any more big quilts but the idea of smaller quilts to snuggle under appeals to me. My granddaughters have both claimed the quilt so they could each have their own.

There were some amazing blocks and quilts posted this weekend.

I’ve decided to only do shoo fly blocks and nine patches. Here’s where I’m at currently. I’ve made about half the 49 nine patches and 13 of the 64 shoo fly blocks. The fabric is mostly Grench General. Some old, some new and some fabrics I’ve had from the late 1980’s.
