"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:

Helen, yes, after I check the instructions we usually try to get the next month up so it is not late. My blog will post January 31 so those who jump in now may miss some helpful info. It’s a good time to select fabrics and print appliqué patterns if using one of the fusible papers. Enjoy!
I think maybe the wording is a little confusing on Block 5 applique. It look like the picture shows two colored fabrics being used to
make the main applique. You sew them together and line them up horizontal and vertical lay the applique pattern on that and then
cut the applique out from the sections you just pieced. Hope that makes sense. I did not know that the month 2 was up already.
