I prefer machine piecing, but always have some applique or other hand work ready to do while watching TV in the evenings.

Which do I prefer? Both – I love to piece by machine and I love to do the handwork. Everyday involves one or both.

I like both, but probably prefer to piece, because it’s generally faster, even if you are comparing machine applique. I do all of it, though, hand and machine. Thanks for the chance to win this lovely graphic pattern.

I prefer piecing but I think a little applique on a quilt, especially the border, gives it a special touch.

Well I would have to say nothing is better than both!! The secret is that the applique must play well with the quilt design.

Sharon, I love applique! On the other hand, I’m always working to improve my piecing skills. When I need something quick, I piece.

I do both but I really LOVE to applique. I find the concentration of appliqueing helps reduce stress and I love the finished outcome of “quilts appliqued”! I also really love your last quilt especially the beautiful border fabric.

I prefer piecing especially Foundation Paper Piecing… I do have a couple of applique projects that I haven’t tackled yet.

I love both piecing and applique in a project. I like piecing for backgrounds and to enhance the structure of the quilt with applique for the focus and ‘pop’.

I prefer applique. It used to terrify me, so I set a goal to learn as many kinds of applique as I could. I prefer back-basting.

Paper-piecing is my favorite, with applique a close second! Thank you, Susan

I prefer piecing, but I’m trying to add some appliqué, both needle-turn and the quicker version whose name escapes me, to the mix.

Most of the time it’s pieced but I like them both. I also like to combine them. Your Little Boho Quilt is so cute. I think it would be a wonderful scrap quilt or a two color quilt.

I LOVE both types of quilting, appliqué and piecing. They are both so different in their looks and methods. I used to be more afraid of appliqué, but now I can breeze right through it, with some experience and good tools at hand.
PS: That little “Boho” quilt is really sweet…..

It's been such a long time since I posted, I am going to start today off with a post about the Zig-Zag border I am making for my Roses quilt.

There are many ways to make a Zig-Zag border, I have chosen to use half square triangles. 

Here's how it works.

I cut 2 1/2 inch strips from a dark print and a light print then matched the light and dark print fabrics with right sides facing. I used a half square triangle ruler to cut out the pieces. Taking them to the sewing machine and sewing them together with a 1/4 inch seam. I like this method, it's fast and requires very little trimming.

 The Roses quilt is coming along nicely, I have been squeezing in time over the weekend to stitch the applique Roses onto the third border and I can see the quilt starting to take shape. Today I hope to have the third border stitched in place and start prepping the fourth border of Roses. This will complete the center of the quilt. From there I have a vague idea of what will come next, I am hoping it will come clearer to me as I progress.

This morning I am sewing the border fabrics together for the top and bottom borders of the Roses quilt. I have selected and range of tone on tone prints some light and some with a little bit of colour to give a bit of interest. I love to mix up the fabrics, using a large selection. Something I find helpful when piecing the strips is to pin at least the end of the seam so the fabrics don't shift while you are sewing and end up with one end longer than the other.
