Bernina store where I teach. I'm going to submit it for consideration, anyway. It's made from a pattern by Abbey Lane Quilts called Matchbox. The majority of the fabrics in this quilt are from "Breath of Avignon" by American Jane Patterns by Sandy Klop. It is such a happy quilt, I think. I tried a new product for this quilt called Heat Press Batting Together (odd name, I think) It is a fine mesh fusible product that is about two inches wide. What you do is lay your batting scraps together, butted right up to one another but not overlapping at all. Then, you press this product over the seam. It's super thin and light weight and once I had the quilt layered up, you couldn't even tell that I had used four different pieces of batting. Pretty cool! In order to make sure I had the seams completely smooth, I laid the whole thing out on the floor. Then, I didn't want to try and pick those pieces up and move them to the ironing board so I plugged the iron into a long extension cord and crawled around on the floor ironing the seams! Oh well, whatever works, right?
G was out of town for this past week and when he was packing last Sunday night, this is where Max ended up:
