|Vertical Basket Quilt thinking.....|
|Reverse Applique: Baste through both layers of fabric.|
|Reverse Applique: Back view of bottom layer of fabric|
with red basting stitch holding both layers together.
|Reverse Applique: Cut out top layer of fabric, leaving enough |
fabric to turn under and stitch down (1/4" or even less).
|Reverse Applique: Clip seam allowance at the V-sections.|
Shallow clip at side V's and deeper clip at top and bottom V's.
|Reverse Applique: Turn seam under and stitch to|
fabric in back with simple applique stitch.
|Reverse Applique: Remove red basting stitch.|
|Reverse Applique: Trim fabric in back to |
within 1/4" of the new applique stitch.
So you see? This is why I never know at the beginning where my quilts are going to be taking me! I'm usually only too willing to take a detour with just the slightest bits of provocation. Glad it worked out this time or I would have been crying all over the new big cut-out right in the middle of my 'almost finished' quilt!
It's a good day to link up to Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching and check out what's happening over there. Remind myself how sane and normal people approach the quilting dilemmas of life!
