    I don't know if I did it right, or even if it's technically applique, but I like it. It's a modified version of Sunbonnet Sue. I haven't finished yet, but almost!

    [​IMG] wow, great job. I was going to try doing exactly what you did, appliquing something to a charm square then use it in a quilt. Way to go, I think it looks great. You are amazingly fast with picking this up, [​IMG]

    Did you cut the Sunbonnet Sue out? I saw some butterflies, bears and other cute little pre-cut appliques in Keepsake Quilting catolog I was going to start with.

    I remain totally amazed at how fast you are learning to quilt! You go! I find applique hard to do and I think you are doing great.
