Candy Cane Lane
Yesterday I went down to my favorite quilting spot, Quilter's Corner ( www.quilterscornersac.com ) It was great to sit and work on a project just for fun. Sometimes I have to get out of the studio and see my friends.
I am working on making another Candy Cane Lane quilt.
This quilt seems to be very popular and all the shops want a sample. Making the first quilt I used a basic needle turn technique. This time I am using the freezer paper and starch method for preparing all the pieces. I love this method because you can turn under all the seam allowances, arrange them on the block to see how they will look, then glue them down with Roxana's glue. Then stitch away. You get such crisp shapes and curves. I am not the most perfect appliquer but I love to do it.
Pearl P. Pereira ( P3Designs.com ) has mastered this technique.
You can't sit in front of the TV or in a doctor's office with a Fabulous Fusible Flower quilt.
If you are going to Pacific International Quilt Festival in Santa Clara, October 11-14,
look for my Candy Cane Lane quilt in the Old St. Nick's booth. I will also have two new quilts in the show.
