Brenda got the idea from: http://www.sewmamasew.com/blog2/?p=2311. In Amanda Jean's tutorial, she makes the quilt sandwich first, then the piece is quilted as she sews the patches on. She was making a doll quilt. With my blocks, I just sewed the patches to the foundation. Sandwiching and quilting later. My quilt will be larger and it will have a border.
I thought this would make a great Block of the Month for my guild, Empire Quilters. But I need a good name. "Raw-Edge Mosaic Collage" is too generic and boring. I want something more fun. Any ideas?
To see the directions, visit my other blog: http://www.empirebom.blogspot.com/. Basically, you just cut a 12" square from white or off-white fabric. Cut your patches, use a gluestick to adhere, then machine topstitch. Do you think this should be regular needle-turn applique instead of raw-edge? I think I'll finish it and wash it before deciding.
