One of my favorite booths to visit at market is Don't Look Now!
I LOVE this gal!!!!
Her quilts are nothing short of AMAZING.
I am in awe of her skill....and the majority of it is raw edge applique! (she did comfess that on accoassino she has done a bit of needle-turn.)
Oh how I would love to go to Australia and take one of her classes.
This one caught my eye at market and I couldn't stop thinking about it.
And she had this one in a frame that she made for her daughter with all of her classmates names on the leaves for end of the year. *heart!*
Although I've thought about it a million times I've never purchased a pattern. I fear that it will end up with so many others in that never-gonna-do-it pile.
But this time it's different. I am DETERMINED to do one. I'm starting out small.
I went here to get a free download and started reading and re-reading her steps. It's really pretty straight forward. However, the trick to making the finished product look so wonderful is her quilting technique of going around each shape a couple of times. That is one steady hand!
I'm going to practice, practice, practice on this little pillow and then I will attempt the TREE! :o)
