Sit back, grab a cuppa………photo heavy post ahead…………..
Note: (above photo) great idea for those large prints you just do not want to cut into!!!!! Just sayin’……………
Barb (above) recently attended a workshop/trunk show featuring the well known designer (fabric & quilt), Kaffe Fassett. This was the piecing that resulted.
Carol, in the photo above, picked this up as a kit. She was fascinated with the gradated background piece of fabric. The tree that, today, would be laser cut was cut by hand, by Carol. Yup, this kit has been hanging around for a while!!! The tree’s outline was on a piece of fusible-backed fabric that she cut out and then stitched, raw-edge, to the background (and, yes, she stitched around every twiglet!!!!!). She shared that what took her so long to do this one was that she was totally stymied as to what/how she would quilt it!!!! She does all her quilting on a newer Janome “Horizon” (DSM).
And that’s the “show” for today!!! Most of the above quilts will find their way to the Ronald McDonald House in Rochester, MN, or are QOV.
Til next time………..stitching awaits……..
