I kind of realize as I am writing this post that I might be jumping ahead of the RinAlong schedule a bit? The official kick off of the quilt along is next Wednesday, so yeah, I’m sure Cindy of Hyacinth Quilt Designs and Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs have details I will be glad to consider… I have put some thought into my fabric selection, and I thought I’d share what I hope to accomplish, anyway!
I am going to use the bright, saturated blue and green as the background for the blocks I hope to make and the black text prints as the applique pieces. My final goal for this project will be four blocks (two green, two blue). My goal for the quilt along will be to finish one block by hand, and we’ll just see how it goes during the quilt along (maybe I could do more?).
Because I am working with such saturated and dark toned fabrics, I selected 50wt Aurifil 2630 (Dark Pewter) to use as the thread for my needle turn applique stitching.
If you have any tips, tutorials, or suggestions for how to get started with needle turn applique, please share!
