What Works for Me

I just realized that the last nine of my Dear Jane blocks have been made using the raw-edge machine-buttonhole stitch method on at least part of the block. If I had had to use a traditional applique method on them (and many other previous blocks), I would be sooooooo far behind...

This is "M-13, Lynette's Diamond", an intermediate-level block.

So true, you really do have to do what works for you in the end. I really don't think that it makes much of a difference either. Your work is beautiful and the quilt is going to be equally beautiful.

Anya I find your comment funny - I am not that great with the sewing machine and it would take me longer to control it to use the stitches you use and can finish the applique blocks faster by doing needle turn by hand! We all have our own best way don't we :)

I love this shade of purple and the machine buttonhole stitch is a great addition to the block.
