Something Old Something New - 6 hours $79
This has always been one of my favorite quilts. It was designed around an unfinished vintage quilt block. We will begin this workshop with a trunk show of my work to inspire you with many ideas of what you can create with your vintage linens. We discuss options for the piano key border, accent pieces, and embellishments. We share ideas for quilting and then move on to learning about making mitered facings for quilts. Facings are a great alternative to binding and we will discuss various options for straight and shaped facings for your quilts.
The leaves on the yellow quilt were added using fusible appliqué with hand blanket stitch.
Nine small yoyos were appliquéd on the pink quilt and a narrow green rick rack was added to resemble a narrow inner border.
Many of these blocks have permanent light blue quilting marks on them, some have light stains...it is all part of the blocks history. I have found it is not what you notice when you see the finished quilts. Vintage pieces have a certain charm you can not recreate.
