My mind has been on applique the past week or so, and I'm exploring several possible projects. One that's especially caught my attention is Barbara Brackman's 2023 applique Bom series
It's a classic applique quilt depicting traditional wildflower blocks, based on a group of antique sampler quilts. The series has already started but I can catch up. I'm planning to prep now and spend hot summer afternoons doing the hand stitching.
