Flower Vase

August 3, 2016

This was my first wool applique project. I just love it. It is a Sue Spargo pattern(https://www.suespargo.com/index.php), that of course, I didn’t follow exactly. Sue’s is much more detailed. Sue is an amazing artist, and I can’t believe what she does with wool. But I, as usual, always feel the need to change things up. Honestly, I have not done enough needle work or wool applique to know what I am doing, but I set off on my own! Anyway, I am pleased with the results. I free motion quilted it on my mid-arm, the Pfaff Powerquilter 16.0. I used Aurifil 50 wt threads for the quilting. Because the wool is so thick, I had to retrace all my quilting lines to make them show up. I read that Sue’s quilter often uses the wool genziana thread on spools to quilt her quilts. That is quite the challenge, but I can see why it probably looks good.

I am currently working on the Sue Spargo Block of the Month challenge, Cuppa. This time I am following directions and doing everything as Sue planned it. It is July, and I am still working on April! Yikes, I have to get moving. I would show pictures, but Sue requires that no pictures show up on Social Media until the year is up and the project is being released as a pattern.

Happy quilting ….

Nancy
