"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’m blaming deteriorating eyesight, but I was frustrated with my attempts with both needle-turned edges and turned edges with a foundation, so I’ll be fusing my appliqué with raw edges. I’m using monofilament thread and a small single blanket stitch. Glad to have the first set done!

7.25 inch template! Thank you for the reminder. You are correct, I do not want to mis-cut!

Terri, I taught a class this morning and one of the students did that--created a 2.75" template square with lines in the middle--she said it helped her get the 4-patch on point trimmed quickly and accurately. Go for it!

I did think the 7.25" template with diagonals and vertical/horizontal lines was brilliant--I was so eager to show everyone. Sure makes that all important "trimming to size" as accurate as possible. You really don't want to mis-cut those applique blocks.

Your 6.75 template idea is sooo good, I am thinking about doing the same for the 2.75 inch blocks. Love your trim to perfection tip, too! Half of my January blocks done and it’s only January 3rd!

Hi Regarding the freezer paper through a laser printer if you watch the video link below you can see how Irene does it, works well.

Barbra, I hope its okay to post this, if not let me know and I can delete.

Becci, I don't think so. The website doesn't talk abou the printing process. Nor did I see that info on a couple You Tube videos about it. But laser printers use heat to print so it is likely this would be a problem with any fusible product, including freezer paper. I know copy shops like Staples and Kinkos won't let you use a fusible product in their machines. I saw on Facebook the other day a post from someone who caused an expensive repair for her laser printer when she tried to run a fusible product through it--don't know which product but I wouldn't even try a laser printer with any fusible.

If someone here has been successful using a laser printer, please let us all know.

Can the print and fuse be printed on a laser printer?

I didn’t want to mis-cut any of those 40 blocks—making that template made the job so easy. I did think it was a brilliant idea and was eager to share it with everyone.

Thanks!

Read your post and still learning, even though I have been quilting for many years. I have always had a problem cutting down oversized squares. Who would have thought about making a template? You did and now I will do just that. Thanks.

Beverly--thank you! Even with the mis-calculation math error on how to cut 2.75" in half, it still came out pretty well over all. I don't think people realize it takes at least 4 hours to tape each show.

So glad you got a few tricks for your toolbox!

Barbara, I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed yesterday's show. I've sewn/smocked/quilted for about fifty years, and you still taught this old dog some new tricks! Thanks so much!

Sharon, that off-green just seems to work with lots of fabrics. It is hard to tell that it's the same thread when you look at the entire quilt. And SO MUCH easier than changing thread for each fabric.

Thanks!

Barbara, after watching the show. Was the green thread for the appliqué a happy accident? It really looks nice.

Thanks for your lovely work, Sharon inColorado
