Happy Valentine's Day
Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! I recently took a workshop with a guild member who does fantastic applique quilts. He wants to pass on his techniques to others and I jumped at the chance to learn from him. I have tried several methods of applique but have settled in with simple needle turn applique. I like that it is simple to do and does not require a lot of preparation work. This is a block from a pattern based on William Morris by Michelle Hill. I have only two blocks left to do after completing this one last night. This block was done using needle turn, but I will try the last two blocks with the newly learned methods from the workshop. It involves a fair amount of preparation work, being a riff on the template and starch method. This will reinforce what I learned at the workshop.
