Up for grabs this week: A bundle of beautiful 50 weight Aurifil cotton threads! One lucky winner will receive 8 small spools of the same exact colors I used for the machine applique on Abacus; plus a large spool of the same grey I used for the machine quilting.

Machine quilting is my favorite part of making any quilt – it’s quick, easy, and fun!

To enter, simply leave a comment letting me know what you think about machine applique! Do you love it or hate it? Or are you somewhere in between? You can also mention your favorite method of applique if you like. 🙂

Good luck!

    Beautiful work! I am not a huge fan of applique because I find it tedious but I do like the shabby chic look of raw edge applique and the ease of doing it vs traditional methods.

    I like machine applique for things I’m giving away, but really I love the look of needle turn applique, and that is what I do my own things in.

    It scares me! But I love the finished product, baby! Sometimes you’ve gotta get out of your comfort zone and realize that your prized quilt WILL be just beautiful.

    I have done some machine appliqué but still need to perfect! Use it when I want to finish fast, otherwise I love handwork overall!
