I almost let this day get away from me, but I promised a picture of the Quilt-Along quilt, and here it is:
Bouquets for Hazel
“Bouquets for Hazel” measures 54″ square when finished, and contains some piecing and some applique.
Over the course of the next 6 months, beginning next Monday, January 9, I’ll periodically be presenting portions of the quilt. The patterns will be in the form of PDF files that you can download and use to work at your own pace.
Here on the daily blog, I’ll be going over the steps contained in the patterns to give you more information and instruction, such as tutorials on how I prepare my applique pieces, or discussions on various methods of applique (so you can choose which one you’d prefer to use on your quilt), or other things related to the making of this quilt as we go along.
As always, if you have any questions during the quilt-along, you can contact me and ask. I’ll be more than happy to help you with any issues that arise. I want you to have fun with this.
So . . . if you’re ready to do some applique with a little piecing thrown in, and you want to make this quilt top over the next 6 months with us, just keep checking back daily for all the information. I’ll be back tomorrow to discuss fabrics and yardage requirements. So be thinking about what color scheme you’d like to use for your quilt, and before I go . . .
