June goal!

My goal for June for A Lovely Year of Finishes is to complete the machine applique stitching 
on some blocks that are already fused and waiting to be stitched.  There are a total of 16 blocks
needed for the quilt I'm working on.  I have my threads picked out and am ready to begin!

I sometimes tend to over-think things, though.  So even though I have done machine applique 
many times in the past, I still went in search of some last-minute advice/inspiration.  
If you're interested in perfecting your machine applique, check out the tutorials over at 
The Crafty Quilter.  I like her sample stitch card.  I have little bits of paper 
with stitch lengths/widths written on them, hopefully with the project as well, 
so I know what stitch settings to use when I get back to it.  
I think the stitch card is a much better way of keeping track of things.  

Be sure to check all the goals for June.....and maybe include your own goal!
