A few of the PP are getting together each month to work on a ‘village’ quilt. Most of us are doing ‘Robianville’ by Robyn Coots, an appliqué 5 panel pattern,
and a couple are doing Quiltmania’s village ‘Mystery Quilt by Yoko Saito.
Jennifer has started a collection of greens for the hills and trees, while
Julie decided to work smaller, so reduced the pattern by 50%. With a stash of fabrics printed with Australian homesteads, houses, and buildings, she is fussy cutting and appliquéing to build each panel.
For this piece of work I am using a variety of techniques as I go along. For this part, it’s turned edge work which I think I will machine stitch down with a monofilament thread. Well, that’s the plan – let’s see how it goes!
Check back next month for a squiz at where we’re up to in this appliqué journey!
