Contessa Applique

Below are instructions for the fusible applique in Contessa:
1. First trace the pieces onto the paper side of fusible web, nesting the pieces as close a possible for the best use of fabric.
2. Then iron the fusible web to the fabric as shown below and cut out.
3. Using a pressing sheet, layer applique pieces and lightly press to adhere.

4. Remove the paper backing.
 5. Place the applique onto the block and press into place. Then stitch around raw edges using a matching thread.

Spring Market 2012

We loved being so close to home in Kansas City! Here was our little corner booth. We introduced our Heartfelt Home collection and the Around Times Square bright batik quilt. Heartfelt Celebration and Heartfelt Inspirations project panels (each 1 yd. and make 5-7 projects) along with our two new blender pieces of tossed crosses and a brown tonal coordinate with the fabrics from the Bella Verona collection we designed for Timeless Treasures.

Here is the Around Times Square using bright batiks. It can be used as a Block of the Month.

Fall Market 2011

We just got back from market in Houston were we introduced our two new Block of Month programs: Bella Verona (left) and Northern Stars (right). We had a great location with a corner booth this time right off the Timeless Treasures booth section.
 We used lots of our fabric to make curtains, table coverings and even framed some pieces of fabric (these are now on my mantel).
 Here are myself (Jenny and Toni) in front of our quilts.

 Myself, Toni and Shirley. Shirley is our go to girl. She helps us sew, edit and comes with us to market. We couldn't do our job without her.
 A picture of our 17 year old quilt prodigy. She made the sample quilt of Tonga Rhapsody for her shop in less than 3 wks by herself. Please comment if you know her name and shop.
I can't find my notes!
