A Graceful Garden & Dish Towels

I forgot to show you this book yesterday. I really really want to add this to my "gotta do" list. I am such beginner at applique, but this book has beautiful projects and pretty big pieces... it just might be right for a novice! I am sure it will be a Block of the Month at quilt shops very soon.
(It's hot off the press right now)!
It's by Denise Sheehan of A Graceful Stitch. It might be best to tackle it one block at a time.

I am having lunch today with my sewing circle, the "Material Girls". We will be having a dish towel exchange. Here are mine. I drew Lisa's name... I hope she likes them:)
Is it okay that I used the birds and design from Bunny Hill's a Tisket a Tasket BOM? I hope so, thank you Anne!

Tomorrow I will have photos from the lunch... oh, and a photo of the pattern I won from Lizzy Anne! Woohoo! I got my templates for making a whirliegig from This and That in the mail also!!!

Your towels look darling. I love the trim too! We just got in at my LQS and I have had my eye on it.
You group sounds like a nice one. You surround yourself with good people.
