Machine quilting lows and applique highs

I have been busy…busy making a mess.  I have discovered that anchoring a quilt causes puckers; leaving no room for quilting to go and it is sort of bothersome because I have to take out the pleats.

It does look nice though:

I am still working on my Nature’s Journey and I am having fun:

IMG_5903These have yet to be appliqued and I am pleased with the results.  I am so playing in my scraps and love reaching in and seeing what I have.  I found “appliquick” fusible and I like it better than the “pellon,” shich is not fusible.  It is lighter and softer.   Now to get April’s blocks done.
