Over the last few days I have been piecing together the wonderful Siblings Together Quilting Bee blocks that I received from all the lovely members. I plan to do an official post on this quilt with much better photos once I have finished the quilt. However, here is my progress so far.
Last night I pin basted the quilt and marked it with a Hera Marker for quilting. I am going for very
I will be adding a black and white border using the fat quarters that were left from the black and white fabrics.
Last week I purchased a Sarah Fielke class on Craftsy. In this class she teaches needleturn applique. I have tried this before but not really following any wonderful instructions. Sarah's instructions and method is brilliant and very straightforward. I would say that you still have to practise the actual needle turning technique but I certainly found this a great way to do it and looks fab! It is also a great way to use up those little scraps that we all keep! ( just in case!) .
So today I am planning on tackling some of the quilting on the ST quilt and doing some last min class prep for my Epp class tomorrow. Week 2 and we are choosing fabrics, learning how to use a rotary cutter safely, and fussy cutting. Then EPPing our pattern together! A busy lesson.
