The "Flip & Fuse" method of applique is demonstrated in this video by C&T Publishing. Give the technique a whirl on your next quilting project! Enjoy!
Connecting Threads used their Folk Blossom fabric line to give the City Blocks quilt a whole new look. The kit for a full-size bed quilt is available for $63.13 at http://www.connectingthreads.com/kits/City_Blocks_Full_Quilt_Kit__D8775.html?intmedid=BS--Kits.
Bev Sarchett from Grass Valley, California shared her beautiful version of the "Robin's Rainbow" pattern from Happy Stash Quilts.
She had so much fun making it that she made enough extra blocks to construct a gorgeous second quilt -- a girl after my own heart! :-) This quilt reminds me of the barn on my grandparent's farm in Oregon. LOVE IT!
Huge thanks to American Patchwork & Quilting for featuring my quilt "Rainbow Connection" on the cover of their magazine. Love their photography! :-)
In the February 2016 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting, we featured Rainbow Connection by designer Marcia Harmening of Happy Stash Quilts. Create a veritable color explosion with ombré fabrics in warm and cool colors. Believe it or not, the quilt top is made with only three fabrics! Marcia used the Ombré fabrics: Gelato collection by E.E. Schenck.
Thank you for sharing your lovely "Spring into Christmas" quilt! Beautiful!
Thank you Yarns & Fabrics for the wonderful review!
Become an applique cheat. Create fabulous applique quilts with this quick and easy method. Flip and fuse sounds a bit like me doing electrics, but it’s a simple, accurate way to applique, designed for speed and economy. 12 fun projects introduce you to this foolproof method. There is no hand sewing, applique is machine stitched in place. You can choose lightweight interfacing or soluble applique sheets and you’ll need a turning tool. The designs have skill levels so this book is suitable for anyone from beginner upwards. Excellent projects and the superb attention to detail that I have come to expect form C & T Publishing. Superb charts for fabric requirements for six different sized quilts (from Baby to King), cutting and construction. Each design has such clear professional photography. There are ideas for alternatives to the projects. I love Petal Patch with its curved edges and Circle Burst but to be honest they are all great designs. The Snowflake wall hanging is like an Hawaiian quilt and it is only difficulty level 1. Dare I attempt this? Pattern sheets are found at the back of the book and templates are actual size without seam allowances. It’s a fantastic book – try a new way to applique today.
