Bloggers' Quilt Festival for Fall

It's time for Fall Bloggers' Quilt Festival at Amy's Creative Side. I was honored to have been a featured quilter on Amy's website last month. 

The quilt I'm sharing for the Fall Festival is my most recent finished quilt, Lemon Pie.


I used a Piece O' Cake Designs pattern featured in Fon's & Porter's quilt magazine.  The pattern called for fusible web and machine stitching for the applique.  Through experimentation, I settled on a small zigzag stitch to finish off the applique. It was a bit of a struggle but a good learning experience.  I have since learned that The Bottom Line thread by Superior Threads is the perfect thread for machine applique.  How I wish I knew about this thread before this project.



I had a lot of fun with the quilting.

The Bloggers' Quilt Festival is a great opportunity to see lots of inspiring quilts and meet new quilters.  Thanks to all for visiting my blog.
