Yesterday I put together a few paper quilt tops
for a class I am teaching later this month.

Home Sweet Home
Papers from a vintage song book and a vintage tree book.
I rip the pages free hand, I like the rough edge it creates.
These images came from several different books. I found some great old national geographic books at the thrift store with so many beautiful images.
All of these paper quilts are ironed onto a sheet of fusible web. This not only holds the papers together, but stabilizes everything. These will be layered onto batting and fabric backing and free-motion quilted and bound.
Rainy today.........good day to head to the Thread Shed and stitch.
When I opened the door, I could see I wouldn't be alone today while I sewed.
Today I did some applique work on the Sunflower Quilt. I am trying to finish this 100 x 100 inch quilt this month. I have a few more days of stitching, adding a few more sunflowers, chickens and grass, basting and quilting to do. I hope to have it completed for an exhibit in September.
