I’m excited to show you the fresh new patterns
that I’ve been working so hard to bring to you.
I hope you enjoy seeing what I’ve been up to.
I also hope you’ll be excited to make 1 or 2 yourself.
Each one was so much fun to create!
If you remember, I showed you my favorite a couple of weeks ago,
Dredsens In The Park.
I love making little Dresden plates
more than any other quilting task these days.
Does it show???
They’re so relaxing & gratifying when
you have the right tools & know all of my tricks!
I discuss & illustrate these for you in every one of my patterns.
When you sew the rainbow it’s nice to have
a beautiful box of Sulky cotton threads to match!
I’ve included exact measurements to easily
lay them all out the same way so they match.
Yes, I like precision…
Most of the fabrics are Winkipop by Jen Kingwell.
I also added a couple other Moda fabrics
like this black dot by American Jane.
I intended to use one of these prints as an outer border, but when I laid it out,
the border was “too much” for the quilt.
Remember this pic?
It’s from back in October when I started cutting these fabrics! This quilt has been done for quite a while. Can you understand why it’s so exciting for me
to finally have this pattern ready to send to you???
Freezer paper along with glue &
my Apliquick Bars create perfect leaves so easily.
Practice definitely helps.
I shared with you several videos of me making & also
appliquéing these pieces back in November in my post
“Does Freezer Paper Appliqué Scare Or Excite You?”
You can watch them (again?)
by clicking here.
There’s a little difference in the technique
between straight & rounded edges,
so be sure to watch each
video clip for the most tips.
Flying geese blocks add a bit of “zing”
around the quilt, don’t you agree?
Dresdens In The Park is now available
in both paper and PDF versions
on my website by clicking here.
Stay tuned for more fresh new patterns!
Just Keep Sewing…
