Several months ago, we announced on Facebook that we were looking for QM readers to work on a one-time project for us. We got a great response, and it’s been my pleasure to work with the six women we selected as the Back to School Sewing Team. I’m happy to introduce them to you, one each day, as part of the QM Back to School Party.
The maker of today’s featured quilt is QM reader/sewer Carole Henell from Marlton, New Jersey. Carol blogs at tuffimomsquilts.blogspot.com.
Here is Carole’s finished quilt.
Here’s a bit of what BTS team member Carole Henell had to share:
My experience sewing for the Back To School Party was incredibly positive! My work was appreciated by a group of professional quilters, the materials were exceptional and I was able to work with a fantastic group of ladies! We even formed our own little group on Facebook to cheer each other on and admire everyone’s workmanship.
Timing was a challenge for me due to an extended vacation, but I was amazed at what I was able to accomplish in just a week.
I learned I liked the look of fusible applique far more than I thought I would. Turned-edge applique was my preferred method, but this project changed my mind. I plan to use this technique again—looks as good as turned-edge applique with half the work!
I appreciate the opportunity to participate in the Back To School Party—it was a wonderful experience!
A sincere thanks from Quiltmaker to Carole for her hard work and her excellent sewing skills. If you’d like to sew for Quiltmaker, “Like” us on Facebook so you’ll be sure to see upcoming announcements.
