We are going to have SUCH FUN! There are 12 applique blocks and then a set of pieced blocks for setting.
I will be sharing One block a week and telling you a little story about that block, then you make your block and share it in the Quilt show for that day.. it's going to be SO FUN to see all the blocks!
What do you need.. let me show you
I LOVE these Havels Scissors .. they are the best for cutting shapes. I tell you all about them in my new book.
And I do fusible applique, that is soft using the cut away method. My fusible is Heat n Bond lite, which I have used FOREVER.
My quilt is here in my studio, I took a photo of EACH block so we are READY to rock and roll! I am going to post on SUNDAY for 12 weeks of blocks then the setting.
And for the ones who want to work faster, you can always start on the patchwork blocks!

I first discovered Caroline Fairbanks projects when someone sent me a link to her website SewCanShe. Caroline writes doable project patterns, hosts links to projects by others and has written a book 'Just for you' with co-author Sarah Markos. Today we are going to talk about fun, fast projects and she'll share some tips with us!.
Alexandra Ledgerwood is the author of book 'Improvising Tradition'. That title intrigues me! We are going to talk about quilt making, improvising, traditions and the importance of being part of a quilt community, join us today!
Sewing and knitting are in Rebecca Danger's blood.. not only that, once she creates a unique design she put out the patterns for us, yeah! With over 100 published knitting designs, the sewing patterns came next with her first book 'Baby Says Sew'. 20 practical, budget minded, baby approved projects. We all have babies to sew for and her book is full of awesome projects.
