We’re up at Big Canoe until Sunday morning so I can’t start my 1 hour quilt yet but I did do some knitting this evening watching TV. I’ve been working on this baby afghan a while since it stays here at the condo and I don’t usually do more than a few rows at a time.
So many Stash Quilt members share their wonderful applique projects I thought I’d share one of mine. My favorite quilts to make are scrappy, pieced patterns but every now and then I like to do some simple applique. I’ve tried several methods but pretty much stick to one now – I pick large simple pieces, I use fusible web, and then I blanket stitch them by HAND. I dislike machine applique and I don’t have the patience for intricate needle turn projects.
This quilt was made last year from one of the McCall’s magazines and I gave it to my sister Ann. For some reason I don’t have a picture of it with the binding on.
