Your quilts are fantastic, I'm struggling along, and wondered if you still have your pattern for the "Pointless Wonder". I took a class many years ago and only finished about 1/2 the squares, moved a few times and would like to finish it, but don't have directions anymore. Can you help me out?
I find that quilters either love paper piecing, or they hate it. I'm so envious of your beautiful applique, Anne. It is very impressive. I'd love to have a personal tutorial from you.
Personally, I LOVE paper piecing, so much so that I even do traditional piecing with paper piecing by drawing my own patterns. (I really should get and learn EQ7, which could draw them for me.) On the other hand, I did applique because I had to on Dear Jane; but I never did get to feel very competent with it. In fact, I took liberties and added seam lines to paper piece in order to avoid applique on little triangles and diamonds if I could.
Thankyou for replying to me.. I did manage to find the book amidst my stack of quilting books that havent yet been unpacked when we moved house. funny i new i had it somewher but was thinking i might have borrowed someone elses.. so i think this is going to be a task for me to do for myself again.. I have done one once before using blues showed it to someone and they fell in love with it so i sold it to her.. Missing it now.. hahhahah
You commented about my block of oranges flowers in a wreath shape. This is one block from the Applique Sampler quilt that's 40" x 40" in the Piece O Cake book "The New Applique Sampler" by Becky Goldsmith and Linda Jenkins. It is one block. When I finish the quilt I will post it so you can see the whole thing. I am just learning how to hand applique. It's so fun. Thanks for the neat comment
Anne, you can't possibly know how glad that I am to hear that someone else has a "Wedding Quilt" story! Sorry to say though that I did not finish mine on time, you might say, "Close, but no cigar". All of you quilts are just beautiful, and like I've told everyone else, just seeing other's work is just so inspiring! My mom and I are both hand quilters so as we all know, that satisfaction we get from a job well done is a long time in comming, but so worth the time. Matter of fact, my mom is just about done with her Grandmother's Flowergarden quilt. Can't wait to see it! By the way, loved that purse with the "Vegetable Ladies". Have not seen a quilt like your Celtic Quilt, being of irish/norwegian descent inspires me to try this!
Thanks for your very nice comment on our club's raffle quilt for this year!! I do sell them when people want them... I haven't written up the instructions for that one yet, but when I do I can let you know and send them to you... I sell them for $5.00..
