Apple Blossom Quilts' Newsletter

December, 2018

Dear Quilter,

     This is going to be a very short newsletter as we are all very busy with holiday preparations.

     Did I tell you that one of the quilting items on by bucket list was to do a Bonnie Hunter 
mystery quilt?  This is the year that I'm going for it.  So far I've been able to keep up but...........  (By the way, I'm loving it.)
        At the Haidle house we are deep into Christmas cookie baking.  I have 15 different types of cookies planned.  Have only done 4 so far so this coming week will be very busy.

      As we all run around rather frantically at this time of year, I've found that the hour or so I spend each day with my appliqué has a soothing and calming affect on me.

      May you and your family have a happy holiday season.

Lesson 12 - Lining Applique Patches 

     This is another lesson that is worth its weight in gold.  Since I have learned how to line applique patches that either show their own seam allowance, the background or seam allowances of other patches, I have always used this technique.  I keep lining fabric with every projects so that I can quickly and easily line any patch that needs it.
