To stitch or not to stitch...?

I love to applique by hand!! If I could just sit and stitch all day, I'd be in heaven. Unfortunately, life must go on and I have to make a living. Plus I currently have 3 projects I'm going to work on this year: my Roseville Album by Kim McLean, Ruffled Roses by Sue Garman, and Magical Medallions by Karen Kay Buckley. You'd think that would be enough, but NOOOOO...!!! The Civil War Bride Quilt keeps calling my name. Isn't it awesome? I'm going to apply to the blog so that when (notice I'm not saying if) I'm ready, I can get going on it.
I'm taking a class at MQX on machine applique. Maybe that will help me complete some of my projects. They won't be done by hand but the prep work will be. I'm thinking Magical Medallions may be my machine project. What do you think?

Wow, you are working on some pretty intricate quilt blocks. I took a class with Karen Kay Buckley and she is an awesome teacher.
Thanks for coming by my blog. Hand applique is my favorite but it was nice to learn some new things from Pat Sloan who is also a great teacher.
