"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:

Do you have an iphone? I took my pictures with that and used my phone to log onto the website. I came to this message and wrote a short description. When i was done I clicked the "add file" and selected camera roll. Picked the one I wanted and hit submit. If you have an ipad i think it's the same process.

I can’t post my pictures either. What did you finally do to get them up ?
I added my photo by editing this post.
This is one of my shoo fly blocks.
I’m using all cream background fabrics with. bright colours for contrast. I’m doing needle turn applique so they will be posted later.

Very nice indeed. Are you working from your stash or a kit? I have just started making the ShooFly blocks this morning and am working from my stash.

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?
