I now have a finished Saturday Sampler 2014/15 top. The last of 60 leaves was appliqued on the vine border last night. All of the applique is done with the back basted method.
One reason I enjoyed participating is that each month I would get a packet of fabric pieces to use for that month's assignment.
In this quilt there are a large number of different white on white fabrics as well as all the different greens, reds, oranges, blues, and aqua blues. How many fat eights or fat quarters would I have had to purchase to get the variety shown in this quilt? It's a bit wrinkly from all that leaf stitching.
Now my forever dilemma. Can I do this top justice by quilting it on my machine or do I need to take it to a long arm quilter?
I've started the new Saturday Sampler for 2014/15. It will be a Christmas quilt so my next applique project will be a back basted poinsettia.
