Here is the first part of the applique block for the Jan Patek pattern….Hugs and Kisses. By the way, I got my pattern from Missouri Quilt Co., it was reasonably priced, the shipping was reasonably priced, and FAST! and it was no hassle…took about  1 minute on their site, and they did not require all kinds of registration information  including birthday etc etc.



After getting the one leg appliqued down i buttonholed around each section…it is much richer looking in person and once the whole thing is done, i will also buttonhole around the center with a dark green if i can find one..I’d like to find a nice dark green as there are also 4 leaves to go inbetween the legs and they will be either the same fabric as the center, or will be solid green.
