How lovely you have been able to recruiters your mum to this very engaging hobby. we visited Canada a year ago and had a wonderful time, a country of contrasts for sure. bye for now, happy quilting. Marianne
Thanks for the info on the "tweet" pattern, I went ahead and purchased a copy, gotta love Etsy. I belong to an applique group that meets once a month. The hostess has a beautiful house on a lake and we sit at the kitchen table with our "hand work", a great view of the lake. So I thought I would use the pattern/one of the squares for a table runner/centerpiece for her table. I was thinking of using different colors, though I know the pattern lends to the pastels. She is redecorating her kitchen and last meeting, showed us her new palate, makes me think hmmmmmm???
Hi Cate.. I have one more question.... what kind of thread do you use for your hand appliqueing - all purpose, cotton or silk? I watched a tutorial on Youtube where she said to use silk thread; then I asked a hand appliquer in the guild I belong to and she said that she uses all purpose (her appliques are GORGEOUS!! - can't even see the stitches) so now I don't know what to use - I'm so confused. I have a quilt that I've been working at off and on for a couple of years - started with machine applique but I'm not happy with it so thought I'd try hand applique. We have a machine appliquer coming to teach an invisible applique with invisible thread class, but that's not til August; I really don't want to wait that long.
Your tweet blocks are turning out excellent. I am saving these to do at a later date as well...but your blocks are fabulous love the dote fabric! I am sure Erin loves these too. Are you on her Yahoo site I hope you post your pictures there so that she can see them
It's all your fault!!! lol I had to go and see the quilt bom you are working on and downloaded all the blocks patterns so I can do one of my own when I finally learn to applique!!! They are so cute and I just couldn't help myself! Thanks a lot!!! lol
I live on the Northside ( Nashwaksis) I,m on McKnight St . behind the Bookside Mall . Your Moms name sounds familiar but I dont think I know her . There is 3 Guilds here in town . The Elmtree Quilters , The Fredericton Quilters Guild & The Cotton Mill Quilters . I did belong to the Fredericton Quilters Guild for awhile but I missed so many meetings due to other things going on in my life that I didnt join last year . I may again in the Fall though .
