You do have some fun polka dots and stripes to play with Teen. This is going to be a very happy quilt.

Thank you, ladies.... Can't help but be cheerful when sewing with this stuff. And, I doubt I'll even make a dent in the stash.

Teen, you're using the Apliquick method on your appliqués. The fusible stabilizer makes the shapes a bit stiff so how does the trapunto work with the stabilizer?

Thank you, Anael! The trapunto effect will occur when you sandwich the quilt,which means the applique pieces will have 2 layers of loft. When quilting, you sew around the applique pieces just at the edge of the applique to give distinction. Plus, I counter the stiffness of the stabilizer by cutting out the center's before I fuse. Doesn't have to pretty, just snip away as much stabilizer as you can. Another words, cut your shape, then cut the center out of the shape leaving 1/4" edge that is fused to fabric. I do this on all large applique pieces. The smaller ones will still poof out when you quilt around them as I've shared. Does that make sense? I learned to do this thru Judy Madsen since, for me, the only drawback to appliquick method was the stiffness of stabilizer..hence stiffness in quilt top. Hope this helps...

Thanks Teen, it does make sense. I will do that in future with my appliqué shapes too because I find them quite stiff. For a wall hanging that's no problem but for a quilt I don't like that.

Now I need to find days with 48 hours instead of the usual 24........LOL

Great idea for a Jen Kingwell thread. I have almost finished my Gypsy wife...I am considering an inner border and outer border to make it a bit larger than it is.

Anael and Teen, love all of your bright blocks.

I am also doing LongTime Gone with group of ladies in a Modern Guild. We have a monthly schedule of blocks to complete. I’ll have to resize some of my photos to post.
