Sharing the Love

I have joined a group of bloggers on Facebook – the goal of the group is to inspire each other to set goals for blogging.  I set a goal to post on Monday and Thursday of each week.  Today my post is short and sweet!

I may have missed the boat on this one, I should’ve posted it on Valentine’s day, but I didn’t!  Do you still love me?

This beautiful quilt uses a technique called “reverse appliqué”  It gives a little bit of extra dimension to the piece.  Another term used here is “cutwork appliqué”  Cutwork appliqué reminds me of when we would paper and then make cuts for snowflakes….do you still do this sometimes?  Have you ever done it with fabric?  To add additional dimension I used 2 battings, cotton and then a layer of wool.

I hope you enjoy today’s share – even though it is a few days late!

PS – if you would like to see this quilt in person; it is part of the “Best Little Quilt Show in Texas” Fayette County Fairgrounds –  La Grange, TX.  February 26 & 27, 2016

Have a fabulous day!
