I am fast becoming addicted to raw edge applique. When I first started quilting (about 8 yrs ago) I hated applique and I was only into machine piecing. The quilts go together so quick. However I have ended up with a mountain of quilts some of which I don't really like any more.
Now I have less time than ever before and you would think that I would have suck to machine piecing due to the speed..no I decided to hand sew and applique....so quilts are very slow to finish these days.
However in the interests of feeling productive I have discovered raw edge applique for pillows. I think I have made five now and this is the sixth one. It is a gift for a friends nephew whose name happens to be Jamie. Here's a sneak peak. I still have to spray baste and sew the edges of the applique and quilt the pillow top.
I have also made some more circles for the Georgetown Turnaround quilt I've been working one. I just loved playing with all the colours to make the large circles. I've now only to pick the colours for the small circles....oh and piece everything together of course.
