Talking about designing quilts and choosing quilts to make of other designersquilts, the focus goes to appliqué, Baltimore, KimMcLean, Monica Poole. So .. what about patchwork and me.
Did a lot of squares, combined in different formats, did triangles, did strips in a kind of Celtic pattern, a fanwheel and a six pointed star. And yes, while doing so, I always think 'What way will be the fastest way to do it.'
Time to slow down and do a trapezium quilt, So I ordered some 10 degree rulers and tested them. Made a Dolly quilt in a day and afterwards appliqued a Lecien Antique Rose bouquet on top.
And again doing the appliqué I thought: How to do this the best way? This time I used 'plakkatoen' instead of Freezerpaper.
Also used needles before ironing instead of fingers during ironing. Feels a lot better, I promise you.
The next project has appliqué again and more challenging patchwork.
At 16 June (Quilt in Public day) we will demonstrate this technique in front of the shop.
