"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:

I like Janet Stone's method of raw edge applique used in A to Z for Ewe and Me.
I have used a double blanket stitch with Sulky embroidery thread.

I guess the puckering was on fabric I hadn’t washed

Freda, Your blocks look great. Can't see the puckers in the pictures. Did you pre-wash to shrink your fabrics before using them? That could cause
the background to shrink a little. Also, I always use a tear away stabilizer to prevent puckers both on the machine raw edge and on glue edge turn
and machine stitched. Did you soak both the hand applique and the machine appliqué? I know my samples just did not look as good after soaking them.
That is why I decided to go with raw edge and double blanket stitch. Did not have to soak them. HelenW

Freda, love your blocks. Don’t know why there was puckering, I didn’t have that issue.

I now have completed all my appliqué blocks. Two I did raw edge appliqué with double blanket stitch. Thank you Alex for telling us about the hover feature on the Bernina. I did not know about it. What a great feature. The other two I used the Appliquik method and hand appliquéd them. I like the result of the hand done blocks better. After soaking the machined ones, I found they puckered bit. Is there a reason for this happening?

Here are my blocks. I like a variety of backgrounds so it will have a lot of movement.

Barbara B the Secret? be very very careful. One of mine did flop over and attached itself to another area but just a tiny bit. I was able to unstick it. After that I was very careful.

Meegwat, your blocks look good. I tried Appli-stick and had trouble. While removing the backing paper from the cut out shape, one part immediately flopped over onto another part of the shape and it was ruined—unable to unstick it. The good thing about that product is you fuse the cut out pattern to the back of the fabric, then remove the paper to reveal sticky stuff that allows the appliqué to be secured to the background.

What was your secret to success with it?

My applique blocks I did raw edge with appli-stick. I used 100wt Invisifil thread made by Wonderfil with the double blanket stitch. I had a mossy green thread I used for all of the blocks. I did the soaky thing and irony thing as suggested and and was surprised how most of the wrinkles came out. It turned out ok. Don't have the patience for the other applique methods as I am doing other sewing as well but didn't want to miss out on this one. Almost finished quilting 2018
