I am currently working on a small quilt, to be put on a very nice table inherited from my grandmother. In fact it is a sewing table, with little compartments to put your things away. I would like to use it but at the same time I know it is too small for all the little things I use for sewing.
It is currently covered with a Christmas theme little quilt, made with the technique of reverse paper applique, and has been for 2 years. It is time to change it, until next Christmas.
This new project I found in Quiltmania n65, spring 2008, and it has a little Japanese air to it.
I have made 6 blocks so far, so am halfway there. Each little flower uses a bit of my left over fabrics.
I copied every piece on freezer paper (in my case the paper wrapping copier paper), which is then ironed on the fabric.
The flower is hand sewn together, and then appliqued by hand again, not omitting to take the freezer papers away before closing the last petal.
I hope to be soon able to show you the finished product.
