I love to appliqué! My shapes are whimsical and playful and I like to use unexpected fabrics whenever possible. I also like to keep it light, as in fun, goofy and a bit odd.

I hope these quilts make you Ponderosasmile and inspire you to get out there and give hand appliqué a whirl. Think about it and know that with just a little bit of practice you can fill many hours creating your own bright and colorful masterpieces.
