Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday #3!! This time I want to show you my friend Karen's quilt, (which is truly wonderful), that she brought over to me to do the quilting. No, it is not yet quilted. When it is, I will make sure I show it to you. I am thrilled with this quilt because it is one that I have actually been longing to do.
This serves as my inspiration for our ALL day sew-a-thon on Saturday, just Karen and I!! Yippee!! I am so excited. Anyway, check out this fabulous quilt...
Quilt skillfully made by my talented friend Karen.
All the swirls in the middle, purple, black and white are appliqued. So, of course in my version, I will be machine piecing! I will be using the templates from the Sue Ross BOM that I really never started... shhhhh don't tell anyone. So yes, I already have been giving this quilt (Karen's) some thought.
The spikes are paper pieced from scraps. This I will do in the same manner. I will be using Karen K. Stone's book for this one. My friend Karen, did some gorgeous applique on the borders.
Mine will be minus the applique. I absolutely love applique, but it is something that I just don't have the time for right now. I hope that I will at some point in my life though. My border will be paper pieced as in Karen K. Stone's book. Love the look!
So yes, I will be starting a new project on Saturday with Karen and I am just way too excited!!
Something also to be excited about is that today is Wonderful Wednesday. You know what that means, something special in my shop is on SALE!! All patterns are 20% off!! Just use the code patterns20 at checkout to get the discount. Click here to look at all the glorious patterns.
