For example, the first file I went through was "Quilts With Both Applique and Piecing". The file held over 120 separate patterns I'd saved from years of quilting magazines. After careful consideration I kept 10 of the patterns. The rest I know I will never use. There is nothing wrong with any of the patterns - it's just that my taste and skills have taken different directions from the time I saved all of these.
Most of the applique is simple - borders or accents on primarily pieced quilts. A few are somewhat more complicated, but few involve "expert level" applique skills. There are a few folk art and primitive designs, at least 16 baby quilt designs, and a few designed to look "old". Most are just well known blocks put together in various ways to create a quilt that doesn't look "old". All are from the 1990's through the early 2000's.

Same old story, my readers - leave a comment on this post if you'd like me to toss your name in the hat for a chance to win these patterns. I'll keep it open until midnight on Sunday, and will use the random number generator to choose a winner on Sunday.
