Joseph's Coat

This is my latest applique project. You may be thinking the same thing that my friend Milly said at quilt guild this week when I showed it -"Shoot me!". I may be crazy, but I'm really enjoying a little different method of applique. This uses a Floriani wash away stabilizer instead of my traditional freezer paper. The edges are glued under instead of needle turned. It's very relaxing applique once all the prep work is done and I'm really enjoying that!
If you feel a bit crazy, too - you can get the first 4 steps for making this quilt here: Don't Look Now - Joseph's Coat quilt along.

A couple of readers have made a block from my tutorial on the last post. This is Anne's from Batiks by the Bay. Anne's back in Australia and quilting her little heart out. It's called a cushion in Australia.

Shannon from Pieceful Kwilter also made a beautiful, modern-looking block. The block is awesome. I think she's making a whole quilt out of that one!
In other news Rossville Quilts has kitted up my table runner from the Moda Bake Shop. For $20.50 you can get the whole thing including backing.

I'll be at Jackman's this weekend doing a book signing of my newest book "Flowers All Around". Illinois on Sat. and St. Louis on Sun. Hope to see some of you there! They're having a big sale, too!!
