You can find the instructions and pattern outlines for this quilt in the current issue of Quilters Companion magazine #108.

I made the quilt for my granddaughter, Zoe, when she progressed to a big girls bed. It is raw edge machine appliqué using blanket stitch with a scalloped foundation pieced border. The quilt is constructed as a quilt-as-you-go project. I used a range of colourful pink batiks on a white on white background.

The quilt was awarded first place Large Quilts Professional at the Canberra Quilters Annual Exhibit in 2019 and best use of Batik Fabrics.

It is a great project for refining your machine appliqué skills.

Techniques Workshop with Night Owl Quilters.

We had a fun morning last Tuesday at Night Owl Quilters.

Anne Hunt, one of our members, very generously ran a workshop where we experimented with positive and negative shapes. Using fusible web we created 5 inch square designs, one positive, one negative. I used a small machine blanket stitch in a colour to match the fabric for the raw edge appliqué.

Finished result ….a small table topper and 2 smaller ones for the coffee tables.
