I got this one ready for quilt market, and completely forgot to post it here. What can I say… writing a book makes for a busy studio!
It’s quick and easy to make, and yes, I fused and machine stitched my applique. I respect hand applique but it’s just not my thing… I usually refer to it as a double-four-letter-word! The body of the quilt is based on my Loose Change pattern, but without the improv (all measurements are stated so that you can just cut and sew). It’s big lap/snuggle/almost-twin sized.
The blue is a textured background from Frond, the “white” is a tiny light gray mesh from the Architextures/Kaufman line, the red chevron is from Michael Miller, and the gold stars are from Marcia Derse/Troy.
It’s available on Craftsy for free, so grab one and get sewing… July 4th is coming fast!
