We are taking small bites from our projects.
This April 2010 issue American Patchwork and Quilting features a Bunny Patch quilt by Anne Sutton--a spring quilt with applique. Why not try my hand at this? Well, needless to say my hands aren't too great with applique--there are various methods of how to applique so for these tiny pieces two different methods were tried--spray starch (which was used for the bunny) and light weight interfacing (leaves and flowers). It's difficult to use the starch method with such tiny pieces and even more difficult with other technique. Maybe, we'll try just needle turning. We are learning as we go!! Bunny Hill Designs
Here is another one of the pinwheel sampler blocks ready to be stitched. Quick and easy (when you have the time!)
Two more sampler blocks from last weeks sewing
This is the block for the Jelly Roll Sampler project. When we attended Paducak last year we stopped in Hancock's Fabrics and found these wonderful bags of jelly rolls--only this bag was cut 3" wide instead of regular 2.5"--but, who cares? The price was right!
And ain't these guys cute? This is such a fun project--quilt a row by Fat Cat This has been a blast to work on--machine applique.
