Cheryl and Cindy have kicked off a new QAL to make Carolyn Friedlander's Rin pattern.
I have really been enjoying needle-turned applique since being introduced to the technique at a guild meeting.
It took me awhile (and several practice attempts) to get the fabric folded properly to begin auditioning templates for my block.
Once cut out, I pin basted and then thread basted. I've taken Carolyn's needle-turned applique class on Creative Bug and am following her technique of basting 1/4'' from the edge.
I am going to start to applique around the easy outer edges of each circle first before tackling the bumps. (Not sure what to call them!)
I don't know if I'll make one block or a whole quilts worth but I will be using fabric from Moda Desert Bloom line by Sherri from A Quilting Life.
Have a wonderful day!
