Trying Something New

Have I ever mentioned that I'm intimidated by applique? But I'm also completely enchanted by the gorgeous quilts I saw in Hawaii....and it looks like enchantment is stronger than intimidation...

The smart thing might've been to pick the simplest design in the book. But if I'm going to spend as many hours as I imagine this will take, I'm going to spend it on something I love. If I'm going to abandon the project it makes just as much sense to abandon something hard as it does to abandon something easy. The investment in materials will be the same either way.

And I'm being just cautious enough not to start with one of the big patterns I bought on the trip!

You will either love it or hate it, and I think your reasoning is sound. It definitely won't be the fastest thing you ever stitched! Presuming you are needleturning, do you know about wet toothpicks?
