Garden Club Quilt, Parts 2 and 3

I thought I'd show you my progress on the Garden Club Quilt. You've seen bits and pieces of part 2 as I've demonstrated the applique methods I use--

And then on Sunday, I was having so much fun with the applique, I went on to make part 3:

Here's a photo of the two parts together on the design wall in roughly the same places they'll occupy when the quilt is finished:

If anyone was interested in purchasing a trolley, I found them at JoAnn's online--click HERE. Someone commented about burning themselves when using the trolley--that's not usually my problem. Generally, that happens when I'm doing anything else and I've forgotten I have a hot piece of metal sitting next to my right arm. Or I'm waving the iron around and not being careful. One of these days, I'll finally learn. I hope.

Now that I've finished the third part of this quilt, I'm ahead of schedule for the BOM, so I can set it aside and get my Christmas bed quilt quilted. And, of course, I still have my crack bunnies to finish. When it comes to quilting, there's just never enough time, is there?
