AND in with my just because gift was this top! Karen and I struck up a barter deal just a few short months ago. I've never had much patience for hand applique. Why did I think I would do the Piece and Plenty BOM when I ordered it? It was fun to watch Karen post what seemed every few hours a new block; she was that fast! I'll be adding borders, quilting and bind the top for the final finish (something I CAN handle). Thank you Karen....you are the best and officially my go-to gal for applique! I wish you could all see her work up close and personal - perfection!
