I’m ready to show you my final design from this year’s Arrow Rock Quilt Camp. This is the wall quilt I designed for the needle-turn applique class I taught.
It’s called Mayflowers, and I made a modern version:
And a traditional version:
I was doodling in my sketchbook one day and hit up on the idea of making a large applique block surrounded on only two sides by patchwork.
If you don’t care for that asymmetrical look, however, the pattern contains lots of options for different layouts and settings, and even for turning it into a much larger quilt.
Here’s a shot of some of the ladies in my class at Camp (Candy, Echo, and Terri), just diligently working away on their applique pieces!
This original version measures 36″ x 36″, and both the applique and the piecing is easy to do.
