12 Days of Christmas -applique

Recommended Posts

I just finished this quilt.  She didn't want any quilting in the applique and McT around it.  I used Dream select and Dream Wool, So Fine on top and BL in the bottom.

That's a design I learned from DeLoa Jones.  It's in her border patrol book.  She does it with two or three feathers, sometimes she adds a curl.  It depends on the size of the sashing for what I use.  I don't do it DeLoa's way, though.  Linda Rech showed how you do the curly spines first, then put the feathers in as you go back along the spine.  So I use a circle to mark the spine, start at the right hand side and sew the spine to the left, when I get there I start making the feathers going back to the right.  You could actually do it the reverse way.  When you do it DeLoa's way she traces back over the spine and I don't like that look because it's very hard to hit it.

Libby that is beautiful!  I am sure your customer will be very pleased!  I used that same exact sashing pattern in the floral quilt I jus is a quick and easy way to put something in those sashes!

The customer wanted the double batting because she knew it would really puff nicely.  Even if I had stitched it, it still would look nice and puffy, she just didn't want any quilting on it.  When I did the other applique wall hanging that I also posted, that customer didn't care.  You can really tell the difference.

I almost passed this by, thinking it was one of the embroidered Christmas quilts.. so very glad I didn't..  Would have been sad to miss this eye candy.


It's beautiful and excellent quilting, too. 


God Bless,
