Remember that narrow 1/4″ bias strip I cut from the fused silk fabric? It’s an important part of the bell tower structure for my commission quilt. (The wider, 1/2″ strips above are for the legs.)
Using the alignment pattern and a good set of glasses, I clip the 1/4″ strip to size and place sections onto the pointy bell tower top. It takes a little planning to determine what strip slips under a strip or over a strip.
A year later, all the 1/4″ strips are fuse-tacked into place. Even those strips that hold the 3 bells are fused down. Doesn’t it look like a helmet from a Medieval knight floating in space? Tomorrow we add the bells to that helmet. Ring a ding ding!
Ann’s Asparagus by Laura Wasilowski
In honor of the one stalk of asparagus in my garden and in honor of my friend, Ann Fahl (a master gardener) I present the winner of Ann Fahl’s, new booklet called Applique Ann’s Way. The winner is: Dot, the applique-phobe. Congratulations Dot, may you have your way with Ann’s Way.
Would you like a copy of my friend, Ann Fahl’s, new booklet? Then this may be your lucky day! Ann’s booklet is the 3rd in a series about machine stitching for quilt makers. And it is called Applique Ann’s Way oddly enough. Just leave a comment on the blog today about why you need this booklet and you may win it!
