Mary and I took an appliqué class with our friend Barb at the Mid-Atlantic quilt festival in Hampton, VA. The class kit included hand dyed fabric from the instructor (Laura Wasilowski). Laura is a great instructor – very informative and entertaining (she loves to make up songs about quilting and fusing) The project was a small circle quilt – about 15 inches in diameter. We put misty fuse on the back of our hand dyed fabric. Then we “free- cut” our fabric using scissors and rotary cutters with specialty blades. What fun we had creating our designs. I made a circle quilt with a lighthouse on an island. I have started to add some hand stitching to my piece. Once I finish the handwork, I will add machine quilting.
Keep having fun sewing and quilting. Donna
