More applique has been prepared for block 2 "Louise" which is part of The Sopwell Ladies Basket Society Quilt. This was designed by the Australian designer Gail Pan, and was bought as a kit from Cross Patch in Wales. As you can see, the applique hust neefs to be stitched in place by hand - I'll use Aurifil 80wt thread fpr this. The applique shapes and the bias stem has been temporarily held in place using Roxanne's basting glue. I prefer this method rather than getting stabbed with those annoyingly sharp applique pins!
