Benjamin Biggs Block 2

I love how photos tend to show all my mistakes. Wish it looked a bit more symmetrical, but when all the blocks get together it will be fine.
Remember I am machine appliqueing so that is how I can get it finished quickly. 
My first 2 blocks. If you have no idea where these blocks came from you can check it out at
JUST TAKES 2.

I have been working more lately but looking forward to more sewing time!

  1. Lori, I really, really like your blocks. Your fabric choices with the blue and red combo so good. That particular shade of blue is what is doing it. Rich looking.

  2. May I ask what threads you use both top and bobbin for your machine applique? I am new to it and want to see what works best for others. Love your color choices!

  4. I do like the red and blue, Lori. I've never done machine applique, so even that sounds complex to me. : )

  6. Love the fact that you're machine appliquéing the blocks. I'm collecting the pattern, but that's as far as I can go right now. You're color choices are going to add your own twist to the design.

  8. Wow - another beautiful blue and red! I just love the colours/fabrics you are using - it will be wonderful. And I admire your machine applique - looks very fine to me! My two blocks don't look like they quite match either but that is just the character of the quilt - blocks originally made by different people - but as a whole it is great.
