30 Days of Improv Quilt Along Week 5 Composition by Shannon Fraser Designs - see how I pulled my improv blocks together into a modern improv quilted wall hanging #improvquilting #quiltalong
The last few years, it seems like we've skipped Spring and gone straight to summer. This year, it's been a lovely slow progression from the dreary end of Winter to the awakening of the new season. Since we've had those glorious days where it's cooler in the morning and then warmer mid-day with cooler nights, I've been able to make great use of my quilted coats 😀 From poutine adventures, to seeing the solar eclipse, to heading for my phototherapy sessions, and chatting on the terrace at...

That feeling when you've finished needle turn appliquéing and you get to remove your thread basting stitches. So satisfying! 😁 #threadbasting #needleturnappliqué #littleforestquilt #littleforestbom #aurifilthread #shannonfraserdesignspatterns #Essexlinen #konacotton #applique #handstitching #sewsewsew #modernquiltblock #treequilt #patchwork #handapplique #modernquilter #qal #stitchstitchstich #modernquiltpattern

A better look at the canopies all thread basted into place! This might seem like it would take super long, but I've actually found it to speed up the needle turn appliqué process. Why? Because the thread basting acts as a guide for how much to turn your fabric under. It won't let you turn it under more than there's space for 😘 So, it really helps you keep things nice and consistent Have you tried thread basting before needle turn appliqué? I encourage you to give it a go! S...
