Step two in Randy’s (Barrister’s Block) Bullseye sew-a-long. I have never done raw edge applique before and I am enjoying the challenge.
A while ago I got an e-mail from a fantastic garment designer in Portland, Maine, Jill McGowan. She said she had bags of scraps from her clothing line and wanted them to know if our quilt group could use them. Not being one to decline any fabric (free or not) I went down to the city. When I walked through the door there were mountains of scraps in large clear plastic bags. Which ones do you want me to take, I asked? ALL of them she said – whoa! I filled (and I mean so full that I was afraid of being stopped for obstruction of visibility) my Jetta wagon to the brim. I passed them out at our next meeting. Well. My friend Christina is making a dent in her bag. Here is a little Lucy Boston block she made with some of the fabrics. Hopefully there will be more to show in the future. Thanks Jill and Tina!
