Is this not the most incredible applique quilt you have ever seen? I must tell you, I emailed Lori and told her I was a bit intimated (actually down-right scared) to attempt this, but she reassured me that her instructions are very detailed and that I could do it. I really am in awe of her talent.
In addition, as if to calm my fears, she sent me this pattern as well. This will be much easier to start with and I'm looking forward to the big pieces to get familiar with doing applique. I recently gave two quilt kits to my Mom that were applique that I had purchased and became overwhelmed by and I believe if I had this one to start with I would have been much better off. Lori has a cute blog with tons of inspiration. Be sure to take a peek!
