More Civil War Bride Blocks
I can't leave this quilt alone. I think I am addicted to it, it even keeps me awake at night.
Here are some pics of my latest blocks.
I would have to say that the block with the bride is my favourite so far, although it has alot of pieces and took me the longest to do.
I am really enjoying the machine applique process and very pleased with the result, although needle turn applique has always been my method of choice and you do get a nice loft with needle turn, you really would not know that this has been done by machine if you were not told when the quilt is finished.
I have also been playing with different products and methods to see which I prefer and I have to say that I have gone back to freezer paper, because I like that there are no foreign bodies in my finished quilt, I also use 100% cotton 50 weight thread instead of invisible nylon thread and I do not like the sheen that comes off it.
Well back to my applique.
