Coming Home Quilt

Another border is now finished in this epic block of the month from Sarah Fielke and I have to say I'm loving every minute I spend working on it. Especially,  surprisingly,  the applique! I never thought I'd say that!


So this border was created over three months. A few houses in the first month when we finished of the centre as well, a lot more houses in the second month and then a month all about the applique.

I have not mastered needleturn applique but have found I'm getting really good results with Helen Stubbings applique paper, which is a visible semi soluble base. I glue-baste the fabric of as if they were EPP shapes, then all I have to do is tuck the dog-ears in as I sew.


I loved doing the suns and moons as they were nice gentle, smooth curves. I was, however, apprehensive about the tiny kite bows. But they worked beautifully.

A lot of the applique in this border is quite subtle and that was intentional... I plan to make them pop a bit more when I get to the quilting stage!

And there's no letting up this month easier with more applique. Trees this time!
