Three Appliqué Samplers
September 22, 2011 § 13 Comments
A while ago Sylvia and her friend Louise and I all made the Piece O’Cake Appliqué Sampler.
We were all learning appliqué through an online course. Sylvia and Louise have kindly agreed to let me share with you their samplers, so now you can see how one pattern can look so different with different fabric and quilting choices.
I have to say that Sylvia’s and Louise’s quilting is beautiful. Mine is less so because I just didn’t like this quilt. It was a strange size – which is why I added a border to it – and I didn’t want to spend ages hand quilting tiny stitches, I just wanted it “done” [Doris I can hear you taking a big breath in. 🙂 ] so I used Perle 8 thread and large stitch quilting.
Anyway here they are. The first quilt is Louise’s, then Sylvia’s then mine.
