Join us on a TQS exclusive 12-month journey into the land of childhood memory with a charming quilt designed especially for TQS by internationally-known Australian designer Lynette Anderson. Lynette combines simple, unpretentious folk art style appliqué motifs with patchwork blocks for a quilt that will be lots of fun to make. Each month we will provide photos, detailed directions for a portion of the quilt, and full-size patterns. We will once again be offering monthly companion teaching videos as well. It all makes for a year of fun and learning!

Very cute, Denise! I agree that wherever we choose to stop, it would make a nice wall hanging.

My house is done and the 9 patches are too. So far mine measures 12.5 square. While not perfect, I'll accept what I have done. Once the rest is added on, it will muddle the flaws.

Thinking this is so cute, that no matter where we stop it will make a real nice wall hanging.

Great idea Denise. I think I might attach some over my facia as it is meant to be a Christmas quilt so white rick-rack will be good. Thanks for the idea. ;)

Wendy, I used the C&T Wash Away Fusible Sheets. I got a packet on Amazon but I see now that there are none available. But really, any fusible stabilizer will work, it's just that the sheets are handy because they will go through the printer. Having said that, I did not print out the applique because they were not available on a separate page but rather included in on several pages along with the main house block so I just traced them from the paper printout. You could also use Ricky Tims Stable Stuff and just glue it down with a Pritt Stick or glue pen. I definitely found using the cocktail sticks and glue pen worked best for turning the applique prior to stitching it down as well.

I really enjoy needle turn applique. I need to go back and watch how Liuxin Newman holds here needles. I have learned tons from Becky Goldsmith. I tried using glue a while back and did not enjoy the process. To me it became more like doing a craft project than a sewing project. However, I will give it another try just in case I like it better now that I have more experience.

That's the way I did it Rita and it worked for me too. I use a laptop with windows 7 and access through google chrome.

Marilyn, I don't use a PC but this is what I would do: I would highlight the text from Andrée's first instruction, copy it and then paste it to a word document. I would then do Andrée's second post in sections and again copy and paste. When I copied to my pages document on the Mac it was a reasonable size. I don't know if that's any help but it's the best I can offer.

I sure could use some tech-y help....I would like to add Andree's instructions to my hard copy
pattern notebook. But when I try to print, I get a teeny font/pic size...impossible to read. I tried to up
the scaleing and I only get a partial page even at the lowest percentage...I use Firefox and Win 8.1
What am I not doing right here..or is there another way?? I had done this successfully on the old site.....
