Apple Blossom Quilts Newsletter


August, 2018

Dear Quilter,

          I'm pleased to announce that I have added a new class to my repertoire.  Sculpted applique is both lovely and exciting.  "Kay's Circle of Beauty" is a wonderful example.  Please feel free to contact me for more information.  
            Just a reminder to those who are following along with my current, free BOM called "Connie Sue's Sketchbook", that I would love to see a photo of a block you have made from one of these patterns.    I have received many "thank you's" from you for providing these blocks to you, but the nicest thank you of all would be to see a finished block or two. 

Iowa Quilters Guild

       On July 20, I was honored to present a trunk show/workshop for the Iowa Quilters Guild.  We meet in Jefferson, Iowa where I taught a class on "Kay's Circle of Beauty".  Though a small group, they were a very attentive group.
     A big thanks to Jennifer Bernard for inviting me.
 

Lesson 8 - Outer Points

     "Outer Points" cause the hands of many appliquérs to sweat and their hearts to race.  If you are one of these appliquérs then this lesson is for you.  It is a technique that I have developed over years of teaching beginners.  If you are comfortable holding a needle, then there is a very good chance you will make a perfect point the first time.  Even if you don't you will probably understand why your point isn't perfect and can correct it the next time you make a point.  Let me know how you do.  I would love to hear from you.   Click here to download Lesson 8.
