As you can see I am making very slow progress on my Halloween block of the month quilt, but I still am totally and completely in love with hand applique. It’s obvious this quilt will not be ready to enjoy this fall, but I actually have a pretty tight timeline I’m working with. I am lucky enough to be on the schedule for Christian Lane Quilters for February. If I miss my chance then, I believe Wilma is booked out until the end of 2012, if I’m lucky!
(If you’d like a glimpse of Wilma’s amazing talent, read her bio, here, and be sure to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the article. See that quilt? Yeah, amazing!)

And if you’d like a peek at what the finished quilt will look like…
…I’ve still got a long way to go by February!

PS…If you’d like to get started on this quilt, too, you can purchase just the pattern here, or (if you’re like me and want everything delivered right to your door so you can immediately get working) you can get kits, here.
