Midnight Passion Flower

Come see this quilt at the Asheville, NC Quilt Show, October 2-4, 2015, at the AG center across from the Asheville Airport. This “No Sewing Until You Quilt It”  57 inch wide quilt was made in 2 irregular shaped halves so that I could more easily manage the quilt and stitch at the same time on my home sewing machine. One unit was stitched all the way to the edges; the second unit (top left photo) was stitched and quilted only to the red basting line. I made a 4 inch wide freezer paper template over my design drawing to iron to the quilt top half that I want to turn.

The stitching and quilting made the

unit shrink up a bit, so I cut the freezer

paper (like tucks) to lay flat and iron down.

This made a nice edge for turning. Clip

the inside curves and using glue stick to turn 

the edge back. See my AQS online article

(January 2015) for joining irregular shaped

edges.

I hope to see you at the show.
