    Hearts and Apron Strings quilt, anyone made this one?

    I'm gathering 1930s fabrics to start this quilt and plan to start cutting Monday. I've never done applique before and I thought this would be a great start since there is only a little bit of applique and the rest is piecing. This is a quilt made by Sharon Schamber and was featured in the April through October 2004 issues of Quilting Newsletter magazine. I've had all 6 issues of this magazine for 14 years with the plan to make this quilt and finally decided to start it.

    Here's a picture of this quilt someone else made

    I like to make lists. I also like to leave them laying on my sewing table and then guess what's on the list while at the fabric store. Fun game.

    I really love 30’s quilts and that one is exceptional. Please show us yours. I want to be inspired to use some of my 30’s fabrics!

    That will be a beautiful quilt and thanks for sharing a picture of someone else's quilt so I can get a visual. I love the repo 30's fabrics so I am exceptionally partial to those quilts made up in this fabric. Enjoy your sewing journey and please share progress pics.

    Yes, I'll certainly share my photo when I'm done. The applique is something I've never done and so is the curved binding. Also new is the dresden piecing. All in all, this one may take me awhile to get through. But I wanted something to stretch my skills. I've pieced and pieced these 15 years and I'm ready for some new challenges.

    This is a beautiful quilt made extra special by the use of repro fabrics. It will be lovely! I'm an appliquér and, based on what pics are shown in the link, these are really nice and simple applique pieces for a beginner to attempt. No major angles or complicated points....and large enough pieces to easily handle. You should have no problem with these.. Not sure which applique technique you intend on trying but any of the techniques will work easily. Just take your time.. Good for you in stretching your skills. Please share your results when done... I'm excited to see it...

    Teen, I couldn't wait until tomorrow so I'm working on it today. I'm not sure if this technique has a name or not but what I decided to do was use Ricky Tim's stable stuff (a paper-like stabilizer you can put in the printer) to print off the templates for the applique. Then I plan to use Sharon's method of folding the allowances around the templates and gluing them in place. Then I'll use an invisible machine stitch technique to attach the pieces to the background material. As I said earlier, I've never done applique before. Today I'm merely printing out the templates and am cutting the fabric pieces. It's fun! And relaxing too, something I'm a little surprised by.

    My very first dresden and the start of the Hearts and Apron Strings quilt. Has anyone made this quilt? I'd love to hear from you.
