Hello folks, I am so very thrilled and honoured to announce my quilt titled “Appeal” has been juried into Quilt Canada 2021 happening Virtually on June 17th – 19th, 2021.
Exciting news! I’m presenting “Hover Quilting – A Fresh Look at Raw-Edge Appliqué” at The Celebration of Quilting in Canada!
Join me for this special event happening on June 19th starting at 6:15pm, EST. I’m the Saturday night closer!
Please support Quilt Canada this year. This show is vital to our Quilting Community!
This quilt is titled Appeal and features the orange peel motif!
To get this quilt started I pieced together these colourful orange peel units and auditioned two different background colours and ended up going with white. After making my quilt sandwich, I sewed a 5 inch grid to help keep everything lined up.
I then pinned and glue basted the entire design in place, and then did all of the quilting. To remove the glue baste, I washed Appeal in warm water and tumbled dried on medium heat which created the beautiful-soft frayed edge that is signature within Hover-quilting technique!
