I, Applique :)

This is the first time, I think, that I've done applique for a real project, instead of just practicing it on scraps. I'm sure this technique has a name, but I don't know what it is - I just zigzagged (twice) over the raw edges with matching thread. Maybe it's the zigzag technique - ya think? ;) It was actually quite fun (albeit nerve-wracking!), and it worked out quite well. The watermelons still need their seeds - I'll either draw them in with a permanent black marker, or will sew on little black buttons. All the blocks are completed for the top - I just need to sew them all together, add seeds, sandwich, quilt and bind. A couple more days work. I'm very happy with how this has turned out so far!

Edited to add: OOOPS!!! I just read at the Fat Orange Cat blog that there's such a beast as an applique foot - I better see if I have one, LOL!!!
