Something New

Thought it was about time to take another quilt class  -haven’t done so in quite some time.  I decided to try an online class on Celtic Applique from Quilt University.    Even thought I’ve done the technique myself on my daughter’s wedding quilt, I thought it would be a good idea to find out if I was doing it right – and possibly pick up some tips.  In addition to the Celtic design, the class will show how to insert fabric into the design, stain glass style.

In the first lesson, we explored different fabrics  and the resulting fabric strips

In addition the instructor suggested that the bias tape maker be held upside down when ironing the bias strip, holding the tape maker at a slight angle to the ironing board and the fabric flat on the ironing board surface.   I think that it really is an easy way to make the bias strips.  The strips are stored on a empty paper towel roll ready to use for the next step of the project.

Now my bias strips are made; pattern has been traced on the background

– I’m ready for session 2, which opens Friday.

There is always time to quilt!
