Play with Me Quilt Along Skill Builder - May

I've been playing along with 
Alida (TweloQ) Designs
in the "Play with Me" quilt along.

This month the skill builder is applique and the block is a Peg Solitaire game.


I didn't want to try needle turned applique on all these circles and the choice was ours to make on how we did the applique.  
I chose to do raw edge applique and made it even easier by using the template
to print all 33 circles on my fusible with my computer.
Have you tried these printer sheets by Thermoweb?


I know I will be using this easy method of printing stencils from now on.
Where has this been all of my life?  

I chose the background fabric because it reminds me of those triangle peg solitaire games I played when I was a kid.  I used a blanket stitch on all 33 circles and the red fabric is Kona solid.

Here are the blocks so far:


I'm having fun making this quilt.  It's going to be a Christmas exchange gift.
I still haven't made any game pieces, but I have 7 more months.  lol

Have a great week!

This is seriously the coolest quilt ever! And, yes, those printer sheets are all I use now unless it is a big applique piece. Love them..and you quilt-in-progress!
