My New Years resolution is to start a blog about my “No Sewing Until You Quilt It” technique.
I have also resolved to incorporate 4 traditional hand appliqued blocks into a king size quilt that I will finish with my turned edge, NO Sew method.
The quilt blocks are from a Mary K. Sorensen 1999 “Simple Gifts” block of the month pattern that I purchased many years ago. I learned how to do hand applique with these blocks and I am so grateful for that experience, as this was a step in developing my own technique.
I build quilts applique style from the background to the foreground on a french fuse foundation, and turn edges with glue stick. There is no sewing until after I make the quilt sandwich, then I will stitch and quilt it at the same time.
