I do ... once in a while. Love doing it but it does take a bit of effort. For the Framed Blooms quilt I got a chance to do more applique - fabulous :).
A bit of tracing, pressing then clipping and you get a nice looking pile of scraps. Do you think quilting is a beautiful process? I certainly do. Even a pile of scraps begs to be looked at and appreciated.
Of course the results of applique is pretty nice too :P. After putting together 6 of these framed blooms I was quite happy with the results. Piecing the quilt top continues...
