Let The Party Begin – Applique in May Make Up Day


It's a beautiful day here in TC. The sun is shining. There's a beautiful breeze. It is supposed to get pretty warm today but that's what we've all been waiting for. I have today and tomorrow off from work so I hope to catch up on things I've been pushing aside but I am going to spend some time stitching.

I hope everyone has enjoyed the blocks from the Sally Post Floral Sampler quilt. I'm uploading the blocks in groups of six blocks so when you open a file you can print off the ones you need. I hope that works okay for everyone. The fabric requirements are on the quilt's block of the month page.
The blocks will be available until the morning of June 9. After that time I'll go back to the block of the month format for the quilt. The entire collection of patterns will also be in the Online Store if you want to purchase them as a group.

Please don't make copies of the patterns even if you're sharing them for free. Please don't email them to others or use them on your web site or blog unless it's for a link here. In legal lingo:

    Dear Gayle,

    Once Again, Happy Birthday and many blessings on your special day. Thanks for all you do to enhance our quilting experience.

    I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for the make-up day. I tried hard to remember to print the Sally Post sampler each day – but missed 8 of them. So, now I have the complete set. I’m thinking of how I want to do this quilt. I’m almost thinking black/white/greys — and then green for stems (naturally) and all bright flowers. Wonder what Sally would think of that!!

    And, a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you!! Hope you get to enjoy it!!

    Dear Gayle!

    A Very Happy Birthday to you!!!
    We should give you a Birthday-present, instead of that you give us one! Thanks so much for the pattern.
    I wish you a very happy bright day!

    Hartelijke groeten from the Netherlands,

    Gayle – I echo everybody’s thanks! I tried to remember each day during May to print – but obviously didn’t! So now I’m caught up and ready for the monthly patterns to begin again.

    Happy Birthday and thank you for all your effort in “translating” old quilts in “new” patterns so our old legacy will be renewed over and over again.

    Gayle, I am so glad you gave me a chance to grab the patterns that I missed. I missed two. Most of all I would like to thank you for sharing the Sally Post for free. I love your website and I come often to visit. Thanks again for the second chance to reprint.

    Thanks for letting me keep myself in stitches!!!

    Gayle, thank you so much for allowing us to collect the missing ones. I looked at them every day for ages before I realized they could be downloaded.
    I might try them with tiny button hole appliqué as a rest from a long BOM of needle turn appliqué.
    I might be getting better but it is slow.
    It is an Oriental Baltimore from
    I talked all my friends into doing it and one has finished…but it is stretching me……
    Thanks again.

    Gayle, Sorry about the above message. My computer is doing funny things.
    We haven’t heard from you in awhile and just hope you are well. You had all of those medical tests a few weeks ago and I pray that the results were good. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
