A LITTLE BIRDIE TOLD ME TO DO MORE APPLIQUE

Just a quick note to say hi and tell you that this is what I’ve been working on today.  More appliqué prep work.  That prep work does take a lot of time, but it’s worth it to me.  Once the appliqué block is prepped I can pick it up and go sew anywhere without worrying about my thread getting tangled around the pins or about losing an appliqué piece, and I know exactly what my block will look like once the appliqué is finished.  Above is just one block in another (different) table runner.  I’ll tell you more about it as I get further along.  If you are interested in how I do applique you can click on the witch's feet on the sidebar and in that tutorial is a link for the applique directions.

DON’T FORGET:  
  •  The Shop will be closed on Monday, September 2nd, in observance of the Labor Day Holiday.
  • Teachers please get your upcoming classes on the calendar ASAP.  
  • Mark your calendar now for the next Stitch-In which will be held September 20th and 21st.
ON ANOTHER NOTESwim Bike Quilt has a free pattern for a Star Bright Quilt.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!
