Machine pieced and hand appliqued
One of my favorite quilts of last year! I was working with designer fabrics for a long time and at some point decided to make a switch for a change. I used some new fabrics and few recycled fabrics from shirts and scrubs from the Goodwill Store.
The Applique Garden is progressing slowly but surely!
I designed this pattern for the block of the month class I taught at Quiltworks Northwest in Washington.
After moving across the country, I took a long break in 2007. It was not easy to uproot the kids and move them in their teen years. They somehow made it work for themselves being busy at school and getting close to each other. I found myself with the burning question,"what now?"
The fabrics were still in boxes and it felt like an enormous task to pull them out and set up the sewing machine again. Six months went by and one fine day I decided to be happy again!
Mango Salsa was the first quilt I made after the big move.
I am happy that I did!
Still needs some spicing up but overall I like the flavor!
