New Applique' Project
I Love this book and have admired 2 of the quilt projects inside for quite some time. When I saw the new Bridgeport fabric collection by Jo Morton I knew it was time to begin my Evening Blooms quilt. I'll be making it slightly different from the one in the book (shown below) I'm not good at scrappy unless it's "organized" lol. I'm opting for a simpler scallop border instead of the dresden border. As you can see in the next picture - my background choices for this quilt are MUCH more subtle too: These are the Red/Black/Brown fabrics I've chosen from the collection: I'm making a couple of Shop Sample blocks from this pattern using a method called Invisible Machine applique'. My dear friend Sue has agreed to make this quilt and will be using this same method of machine applique'.
I'm still on the fence and leaning toward completing my own blocks by hand. The pieces are so big & easy to turn that they shouldn't take a lot of time to complete.
My name is Doreen aka Aunt Reen.
I've been a passionate quilter for 30+ years.
I love all aspects of quilting and find great joy in teaching and in learning from other Quilters. I am especially fond of sewing small scale quilt blocks and also enjoy applique'.
