Quilting History, Day Four


Several years ago, I took a Learn to Applique class from Joan Statz .  Joan is a creative, entertaining teacher.  At the time, she taught a different method of applique, using wonder under and tulle.  Here is the little quilt we made.
I've done a little more applique since then.  Here are a couple.

The Welcome wall hanging is a pattern from Castilleja Cotton  and the Snowman table runner is a Patrick Lose design.

I have also partially finished a Saturday Sampler that ended just about a year ago.  Here's what is done so far.
There are additional scrappy borders to go on the two sides (the quilt is sideways in the picture).  I'll talk more about this quilt in the future.  Almost as soon as I completed the applique on this quilt, I bought Annie Smith's book, The Ultimate Applique Guidebook  and I learned that I had placed my leaves all wrong.  Oh well, next time!
