I should preface this post with the fact that I hate doing machine applique, with a passion. In fact I've sewn nothing but straight stitch since I got my new machine two months ago. The second block from Sara's QAL is all applique though and in the interest of timeliness I needed to do it on the machine.
I pulled out my poor neglected old machine and set it up. The kids probably learned a few new words. After unpicking several times I finished it. I'm not completely happy with the result but when it is in the final quilt I'm sure it will be fine. So here it is.
