Winter IS Coming… And so are the holidays!
It’s inevitable so don’t shoot the messenger here… at least it’s not Christmas in July, I did wait till August! :) I wanted to thank everyone for their nice emails and comments on my tutorials ~ it’s great to get feedback and hear from fellow quilters!
Earlier this summer I was busy working on this little holiday project for The Festival of Quilts. The festival is held in Birmingham, England, and I made this mini-quilt for the Warm Company’s booth to promote their fusible fleece.
All the applique is either quilting cotton or wool…
I used perle cotton to backstitch or add bullion knots around all the applique.
and I also used the perle cotton to do some big stitch hand quilting… ( Hand Quilting Tutorial is Here ) if you look close you can see that I followed the circular lines on the white fabric which made it super easy…
This project was available at the show this past weekend to UK retailers for their shops as a free pattern sheet… and if you like this pattern (and I hope you do!) I’m posting it here for you too! ~ download free and enjoy!
