Summers End

Project Description

What was your source for this quilting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Summers End by Joan's Own Creations Link to website or photo What are you most proud of? I picked the material this year and added an additional challenge to our project. I asked for a 12.5" square with light background and to use a bit of the Challenge fat quarter, from willing participants. For the two clubs we would then split up the squares, handed in, back to the two clubs and then a charity or other type of quilt could be made from the squares. We had 21 squares turned in and now only 2-3 additional squares are required to make our club quilts. Everyone that participated, was very excited as now it will be very easy to complete another of our many charity quilts we donate each year.

What you will need

  • Packaged pattern
  • scraps and a Challenge fat quarter
  • threads to embellish

It was fun, so I would suggest it to anyone to try out.
Za Manaf asked:
did you use machine satin stitch to fix the applique onto the background material?? Did you paint the sky or is it the background material?? I am going to do try a spring landscape and see how it comes up...:)
cari2rcky answered:
I pinned a lot in to place and then straight stitched the main pieces in place. Then went back and satin stitched for detail. The trees were close zig zagged for detail. The background is a sky material. Good luck, I was thinking of a Spring theme also.
