Little Miss Muffet on Open Line Friday

Tuffet.Karyl.002Good Morning, Quilters!

Welcome to Open Line Friday!  A few weeks ago,  I mentioned that I wanted to make one of the tuffets that were so popular at Quilt Market.

And of course, you came through.  Several of you sent information about tuffets.

Thank you to Karyl, who sent photos of her tuffet.  She made it in a class by Sharyn Cole of Tuffetsource.

Work in Progress-Popsicle Pillow

Popsicle Pillow Applique

I took a break from my bigger projects to work on a summer-themed project this week.

Don’t you love popsicles in the summer?

For this little pillow, I cut out the simple shapes and tacked them down with a little glue.  I layered the fabric on a piece of light-weight batting before zig-zag stitching around the raw edges.  This is a very informal way to appliqué.  I use it for experimental pieces and for quick, casual projects.

Once the pieces were appliquéd, I did a little free motion quilting to complete the pillow top.  (See The Circle free motion quilting tutorial HERE)

I will finish this pillow with piping and a simple quilted back…
