Schattige tulpen! from M. Brito de Campos

Afgelopen woensdag was ik in Amersfoort op de tentoonstelling van de Secret Sewing Sisters uit Australie, georganiseerd door Petra Prins. Ook Susan Smith was op de tentoonstelling vertegenwoordigd met quilts uit haar nieuwe boek 'Quilts, somewhat in the middle'.
Ik was niet van plan een workshop te volgen, maar vlak voor de tentoonstelling las ik op facebook, dat er nog plaats was bij de workshop van Susan, The Garden at Ederveen. Een quilt met heel veel hele leuke blauw-witte tulpen. En toen was de beslissing snel genomen.



Mijn voorraad is tegenwoordig groot en divers genoeg om voor de workshop, en ...

SQUIRREL!! Needle-Turn Applique Tangent Delays Completion of Jingle BOM Quilt Top from Cheeky Cognoscenti

Good morning!  Yes, I'm aware that it's afternoon, but I'm running sluggish this morning even after my second high-test espresso beverage, so it's still Monday Morning Mode for me.

I've been having so much fun working on this needle-turn applique block from the workshop I took two weekends ago, taught by Christa Smith of Cottonberry Quilts.  I deliberately chose wild and wacky fabrics for my block to give myself a break from the monotony of the soft, traditional color palette of my Frankenwhiggish Rose needle-turn applique WIPFAE (Work In Progress Forever And Ever), and I ...

Oh my gosh, you guys -- I had the BEST time at my needle-turn applique workshop on Saturday!  Not only was it a healthy slice of heaven just to relax and sew with no distractions for an entire day, but I also went to lunch with some wonderful, funny, and incredibly talented quilters who invited me to join their quilting bee.  Their monthly get-together was yesterday, which gave me another three hours to relax and continue working on my applique block with other women who share my love of quilting.  I am floating on a cloud of sunshine, sparkle dust, and ...

How to Needle Turn Applique from Patchwork Posse

In this video, I’ll show you how to needle turn applique.

There are a couple of different ways to do this, this is my process.

I am totally NOT a pro here– I’m still learning, thus my stitches aren’t perfect, and neither are my edges around curves. It takes a bit of practice, so give yourself a break if it isn’t quite working out how you’d like.

Here is my basic Needle Turn Applique Process:

You’ll trace the template, cut the fabric 1/4 inch outside of the drawn line.

I then layered the ...

Travel Interlude: FrankenWhiggish Rose, Resurrected and Resumed from Cheeky Cognoscenti

Hello and happy Friday!  I've been out of town and away from my sewing machine, but air travel gave me a great opportunity to catch up on my neglected hand stitched applique project, the FrankenWhiggish Rose blocks that have been sitting untouched since last September.  The day before I left for New Jersey, I spent hours prepping my reverse applique tulips (freezer paper and starch pressed edges, glue basted to the block) as well as the little rosebuds that go around the center of the block (using Jeanne Sullivan's Patch Back product with fabric glue stick to turn ...
