New Quilt " Me and My Shadow"
Another quilt done!!! I love quilts with applique, but have to admit that I cheat when it comes to the applique part. No time for needle turn applique( although I do love the look) so I fuse my pieces down and do a small running stitch with co-ordinating thread so it doesnt show much. I also like to use a blanket stitch, but didnt on this quilt because I thought it would look to heavy. The meander quilting was done on my long arm (Millie) and yes.. I did quilt over everything. I know some of you do not like to quilt over applique, but I do not have a problem with it and kind of like the way it keeps the quilt flat.The pattern for this quilt is from Primitive Pieces by Lynda and is called " Me and My Shadow". Call shop or e-mail me for the pattern. Comments always welcome!
