Sweet Surrender Progress

 The pieced triangles for Sweet Surrender are all pieced and trimmed! The applique blocks have also been trimmed along with the half triangles. Now I just need to start sewing the bias edges.



I started appliqueing the blocks two years ago in January 2016 and finished them in June 2016. I don't know why I procrastinated on piecing the triangles for so long but, now they're finished! 

I get comments and emails asking where they can get the Sweet Surrender pattern. The only place I know to purchase the pattern is Material Obsession in Australia but Nanette has a Sweet Surrender pattern that she has listed for sale on her last post. Contact her about the price. Update - Nanette's Sweet Surrender pattern has been sold but still has other patterns available.

The flowers are not made with regular hexagons, they're made with a Hexden shape. I got my EPP papers from Paper Pieces.

  5. Hi Gretchen,
    Those appliquéd blocks are just beautiful. They will look fabulous with the triangle blocks. I cannot wait to see you put a period on this quilt top, and see it all together. ~smile~ Roseanne

  6. That quilt is going to be a show-stopper! I was immediately drawn to the diamond blocks. That red is such a great color to set off the quilt. I don't much like appliqueing, but I love looking at it! Yours is gorgeous and the EPP is beautiful. I'll look forward to seeing it put all together!

  7. This will be a beautiful quilt! I love the delicate flowers and the slightly bolder triangles, especially with the row of red triangles across the top.
