Quilt With Us

OK, here comes the confession first.  This is my first applique project and first free motion quilted project, but I figured, “hey these are small, this might be a good place to start.”  I think I was right!  I used fusible applique and then zigzag/satin stitched the edges.  Simply free-motion quilt around the flowers (or use your walking foot), easy-peasy.  The vibrant colors of Folk Heart (available next week) go great with the simple design from “Quilting Those Flirty 30's”.  Patterns for coordinating apron and tea cozy are also in the book for a complete kitchen set, but remember… I wanted to start small.  This is a great day project for those that are experienced or a weekend project for those of us that are a little newer.  So now here comes the dilemma, who to gift it to, maybe myself?

You did great!  I would say to keep these for yourself & make new ones for others.  That way whenever you look at them, they will make you smile!
