I decided that for the February BOM baskets I would use the spray starch method to prepare the baskets (all 12 of them) for appliqué.
|Double layer of freezer paper is ironed to the back of the fabric.|
|Spray starch is brushed onto the edge of the freezer paper and the seam allowance.|
|I used the Clover mini iron to fold the seam allowance to the back and when it dries it says there.|
I finished "Spring Kitty" and will take it to my guild meeting tonight for "Show & Tell." It's 22" x 28".
|I quilted the background with leaves and branches.|
|Spirals were quilted in the sashing and border.|
I have posted this quilt before, but Ann suggested I post it again. She posted some pictures of her home and I enjoy seeing these, so I decided to post the quilt and how it hangs in my living room part of the time. This quilt was made for my DH's grandmother in 1883 by Grandma Score in Washburn, WI. It was the one of the only things my MIL had from her mother, who died when my MIL was only 9 years old.
