My poor, neglected blog! It’s only the fault of the technique called “reverse applique”. I make one design, then another one, and then another ten!
I sew one design, then I want to see how another one looks like and soon I am finding myself working on the sixth design!
As you probably know, this technique produces quilts in pairs.
And once you make the tops, you must quilt them!
But the cutting process is so fun, so relaxing…almost addicted…
It seems that cutting designs out is all you want to do, without thinking too much about all the cutout pieces! Because there is not enough time to use them all, watch out, my friends, I will send some of them your way!
The magic revealed! Well, half of the magic…
because the quilting, the texture … is the other half of the magic.
Maybe there is not enough time to make the second quilt for each cutout design, but all those designs keep you wondering… how would look like this one?Is it fun? Is it quick? And you must try it… and then you must repeat the experience because it is too much fun!
And soon a few quilt tops are waiting to be quilted…
It MUST BE a FUN quilting!
What do you think?
And this is the “arsenal” used for all this fun:
- a precision knife – for easy cutting
- Aurifil 28wt – for beautiful quilting
- Schmetz Jeans needles – for quality (and easy) stitching
- the beautiful gradation fabric (Gelato collection)- for added beauty!
This post with so many pictures will take forever to load (thanks for your patience!), but I just did not know how to split the WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE in half: what to share first, what to keep for later.
