Really, REALLY done and an interview...


Thank you, Ola!  You rescued my poor, weak corners!  



I thought that the corners were weak.  I had to make each corner F clef "heart" this size to keep the clef sizes in correct proportion to each other.  I was thinking of adding a flower or some fruit to build up each corner.



Ola suggested something in keeping with the rest of the swags.  She told me to go home and make paper dolls - fold some paper and start cutting/auditioning some motifs.  She's brilliant!  I love how she suggested an old technique that was often used in designing Baltimore album style quilts.

My interview from the AQS show finally showed up on YouTube's QuiltTV...nothing like a long car trip and a poor night's sleep to make one fresh and perky for an on-camera interview!



Today I am basting, basting, basting.  Did anyone watch the new PBS Masterpiece Classic "Mr. Selfridge" last night?

In stitches,
Teresa  :o)

  5. What a wonderful interview! I would love to see your quilt in person, too. It would be fun to see all of the little "extras" that you slipped in it to make it special.

    LOVE the border on your quilt! What a perfect way to finish off the corners. I'm in awe at how fast you applique. Just beautiful, as always, Teresa!

  27. I first saw your quilt in Lancaster. It is a wonderful quilt in everyday. Then I happened on your blog, via another blog and so forth. I thought to myself " wow, I saw that quilt!" Then I saw the video. You were great and it was nice to hear your description about how and why, etc.
    I love hand appliqué and crave to do more. I too enjoy all the British classic shows. I love Netflix and the fact that they have so many of the classics from when I was a kid. The original upstairs downstairs is great.
    Thanks for sharing.
