"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:

So happy! Finished my January applique blocks today. This is probably the most hand applique I've ever done, so I guess this quilt will be quite something for me.

PS washed the first 2 blocks, too much work to press, lol, so I'll trim when done and wash and press when the quilt top is done.

Here are my blocks. I may not use the first one as it doesn't really go with the others.

Everyone's blocks are looking beautiful and it's great to be able to see the progress we are all making.

I went ahead last month and made all the pieced blocks so that made it a lot easier to keep up at this stage.

Can’t believe I’ve gotten my February blocks done! Getting ready for pre-Spring Quilt Market frenzy (I work for a fabric/pattern designer making her samples and helping to edit her patterns) so wanted to get them done when I have a bit of down time. Loving these blocks! Doing machine applique but really wish I had time to do them by hand.

HelenW, thank you very much! The green fabric was a lucky find in my stash.
I'm refreshing/learning skills for hand applique in the quilt. This is just what is currently working for me -- Jeana Kimball #11 straw needle and WonderFil Invisafil 100wt thread.
Generally, I use needle turn applique with templates or back basting. Thanks to TQS, I was introduced to the Rosa Rojas Aplliquick method. For the most part in these blocks, I used her technique together with a new product (to me) for the template material -- Quilters Select Print and Piece Fuse Lite. For my skill level at this point, it was necessary to keep sharp-point areas free of any glue and fusible and to just mark the fabric in these areas for needle turn applique. Otherwise, this approach was a great new experience.
For the circles, starch and Karen Kay Buckley's mylar templates are what I reach for.
