I'm working on 2 applique projects. One is a block for Green Tea and Sweet Beans and the second is the center for Medallion Sewalong with Lori at Humble Quilts and Randy of Barrister's Block. Over the weekend I finished the first pinwheel border and cut all the triangles for the second pieced border. Using mostly CW fabrics from my CW quilt plus some surprises like a piece of batik for the bird :0)
Kathie at Inspired By Antique Quilts is able to do that so well. Here is a picture of the applique before borders. I added a small 1/4 inch border to frame the center block. More borders to come...
HERE if interested for a tutorial on how I do my machine applique. I don't always use fusible but these leaves were really small, the stems are very curved and the block is 13" x 13" so I opted for fun and easy! Thank you Lori and Randy!
More projects in the works. Doreen at Aunt Reen's Place is hosting a new project June Jelly Roll sew along starting this week and Judi of Green Fairy Quilts just posted her first sew along using one of her really cute patterns Flower Patch. Judi plans a tutorial for quilting designs! Love her work! Sew many great projects! Just not enough time :0)
