Along with two other members of our in house Sweet Pea sewing group I am embarking on an applique project. I have been told that a pressing board is essential to achieve nice crisp edges to my applique pieces. So this week I made pressing boards for our applique team.
To make these I followed Sharon Schamber’s excellent tutorial on You Tube.The fabric I used to make sleeves is about 20 years old. Perfect for this project.
Peggy and I have been making runners for various bits of furniture around the house. Peggy has been completing the piecing and I have been stitching the quilting.
It is nice to have the occasional smaller project to “play” on. I have long admired Judy Madsen’s quilting style. I like the way she stitches frames around parts of the piecing and creates different shapes. So this piece was perfect for trying out that technique.
I’m pleased with how it turned out.
