About sixteen years ago I decided to teach my self to hand applique. I used the freezer paper and glue technique. I had a collection of Pansy fabrics so hearts on six and a half inch calico blocks it was.
I have to say they were very addictive. After I had made a stack of them I popped them in a dark place to mature. Last October I finally stitched them into a quilt with another favourite – Nine Patches.
Just before Christmas I finally quilted it. Cross hatching through the Nine Patches and Feathers around the hearts.
A bit of ancient Debbie Mumm fabric and Peggy’s Magic binding a nice finishing touch.
Currently hanging at the end of our sunroom. A new favourite, and it’s mine!
Do you see the way my quilt is hanging? My friend Clare and her husband Kerry manufacture these great quilt hanging devices. The binding at the top doesn’t show but golly this device is a dream. No sleeves required and it’s a breeze to change quilts.
Thanks for coming to visit.
