Here are a couple of the quilts that Becky showed us...
I love the way the colours in the applique pop off the backgrounds she chose for her quilts.
On Friday, I took a vacation day from work and participated in an applique workshop with Becky and 19 others.
This is the pattern for our project. We learned how to make templates and trace them onto the fabrics we have chosen on the bias in order to make it easier to turn the edges under when doing our stitching.
By lunch time, I had this much done...
After lunch, we started sewing. Becky provided us with the tiny pins shown above and a couple of different needles to use for our hand sewing.
This is a needle threader which all of us used to get the thread through the tiny hole at the end of the needle! Becky supplied the thread that we used. There are lots of colours in those two bobbin holders!
This 8" block is one of 9 in a wall hanging designed by Piece O' Cake Designs. I had fun at the workshop and will show more pictures of my block as it is completed in a future post.
