    Quilter's Patch, by Laundry Basket Quilts

    image.jpegimage.jpegimage.jpeg So glad this is done....today, I made another pillow to coordinate. The pattern is Dot Dot Dot from same designer in her book, Pillow Talk. I love that book and have made several,of her pillows.. Applique is turned edge and machine sewn using a micro-zigzag and monopoly clear thread.

        Very nice! Love it. I love her patterns I did a block of the month with flowers. I finished the top but want it bigger so working on enlarging with borders. My favorite quilts are houses and baskets...beautiful!

                  How DO you make such perfectly round circles? I love that so much and from experience I do not think it is easy at all! Curves of any kind make me crazy bc I want them to turn out but I am never satisfied! I love yours. You have many talents, all your stuff is fabulous!

                    Your quilt is beautiful. I am currently making this one too. I have all the flowers sewn together and am working on the vine. Well I should say i’m thinking about it, because there isn’t much working going on. I have decided to carry my vine around the top corner, midway across the top. Do you have any tips regarding working with the long length of vine, and of course also the bulk of the huge quilt. any other tips? I am also trying to do turned edge, and was using freezer paper and starch..but gotta get those leaves nice on the points. I have found this to be a challenging quilt

                            Thank you! I Have tried all applique methods and my favorite, and one I do exclusively, is Appliquick. I prefer turned edge but dislike needle turn so, when I stumbled on this method, I was hooked. The method was further endorsed by The Best of Show last year at one of the international quilt shows. In her interview, she shared she used Appliquick method for all her circles in her quilt....which were hundreds and all small to mid-size. There is a YouTube on this method. Circles and curves turn out beautiful.

                              Thank you! Though challenging, wasn't this a fun project with all the different blocks and techniques? I have seen other quilts where the vine is extended around top corner and that is beautiful. I decided not on mine..I did add more butterflies on the top as opposed to appliquing the quilt title as per pattern.

                              tips: Regarding vine, I did not attach my borders until all the applique was sewn on....that helps with not having to wrestle the size of the quilt, regardless of applique method used. You could leave a large tail of vine to attach to the top border when you hit that section to sew. I used a water soluble marker to draw my vine first on the border. Then I used a glue stick (water soluble) and, in sections starting from watering can, slowly attached my main vine in place. Pattern provides a template for the vine but I just winged it making sure my vine curves measured same from edge of flower block unit. Good luck! Looking forward to seeing you quilt!
