"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:

EllenCeleste,
Thank you for your post about fussy-cutting the shoofly blocks to be on point. I hadn't thought of that.
I have some directional fabric I am planning on using too.

Thank you. I have ordered Quilter's Select 80 to use on top. I do have neutral Bottom Line. I will use that in the bobbin.

Eye stitch, I also use Quilters select 80 or 60 wt or Bottom Line, in a neutral color. Adjust tension so it does not show on the top.. BERNINA has a new yellow bobbin case that is high tension, it works perfectly to keep tension right. Do some practice to get your settings how you like them. Be sure to write them down for the next block.

eye stitch, do you have any bottom line or have purchased any of that 80 wt thread from The Quilt Show shop. that thin thread works well in the bobbin for machine appliqué.

I am getting ready to blanket stitch around the appliques. I will match the upper thread to the fabric so it shows as little as possible. What should I use in the bobbin?

That moment when you wake up at 3 a.m. and realize that the shoo fly blocks will be on point and you just fussy cut all nine blocks to be straight on. A couple I had to rethink. But I needed to redo one block that was already finished. Needed my puppies to be represented in the quilt

HelenW, what a good idea to exchange a shoofly block for an appliqué if you want. Since the quilt can be whatever I we choose, why not?

Heather, Take a look at applique blocks and if there any that you don't really like the looks of, make a shoo fly to replace them. I too love making them.
They all look great no matter what the colors that are used. HelenW

Here are my blocks for the month. I love all the blocks that others have posted. Our quilts are going to be spectacular. I used appliquick tools and glue to turn the edges and I think they all turned out well. It takes me about an afternoon to finish one of these blocks, so I am loving the name of our quilt.
