This fall I’m again hosting a Quilting Circle in my home. We meet one Thursday each month to sew, chat, and enjoy lunch together. My co-leader, Karlene, designed a wall quilt with lots of variables. Each quilter’s quilt will be unique depending on size of background squares, border piecing, applique motifs and fabrics used.
Quilting Circle Fall Project16 10 2015
In September we worked on Step #1 – making a background out of ecru and light tan squares. Step #2 – sewing a border of Flying Geese, or rectangles, or squares of Fall colors around the background of ecru/tan squares. Step # 3 – machine quilting. Step #4 – fusing pumpkin and/or leaf shapes to the quilted piece and machine appliqueing through all the layers (appli-quilting). Step #5 – binding, adding hanging sleeve and labeling.
I’ll keep you posted on our progress!
