My First Ribbon!

The Iowa State Fair was held this year from August 11th-21st. I entered my Minnesota Pines quilt and got a pink ribbon-4th place!

I took the Frieda Anderson "SunSet Pines Fused Applique" class at the 2009 AQS Des Moines Quilt Show. I really enjoyed this class. It was all raw-edge, free form cutting-no rulers allowed-and a collage method fusing process. I thought the process was very creative and freeing. I did no sewing on it until I quilted it in the ditch with a variegated thread. Even the binding is just fused.

This was a very fun quilt to make!

  1. Congratulations on your ribbon! It's a beautiful little quilt. I even remember seeing it at the fair but didn't realize it was yours. Isn't it fun to fuse without sewing, just holding everything together with quilting? I like that technique too. It give lots of options for playing, and that's certainly what we quilters like to do!

  2. Congratulations!! That is an awesome feeling...and well deserved :o) Beautiful quilt!
