Quilt Along

I finished my first block for the Joseph's Coat Quilt Along. I've been doing it as needle turn applique instead of the technique that Kellie posted. I've learned a couple things about myself. Most notably that I like to have control over colors and that scrap quilts make me nervous. I was trying to strategically place colors so that it was controlled chaos... for example, the lime I put on one side so it would blend to the next block with lime. Next block I'll try mixing it up more.

I was going to make a tutorial on the applique technique that I've been using for the past 10 years, but discovered that it's called "Back Basting" and others have done some great tutorials already. Apple Blossom Quilts has a great one.
