Time for some show and tell from Berrima Patchwork. Dianne has been busy again, this time finishing up her Bernina Club projects. This table runner was for our Cup Cake Applique Class. In this class we used Fusible Thread by Superior Threads and sewed around each of the appliques and then ironed the appliques onto the background fabric. The Fusible thread eliminates the need to use vliesofix and doesn't give the applique that "stiff" feel to it. The appliques then were decorative with an assortment of embellishments and threads.
Our next show and tell is a bag that Jan brought into the shop over the weekend. When Under The Australian Sun (designed by Leesa Chandler for Robert Kaufman) arrived in the shop, Jan fell in love with the fabric and every so often she turns up with a project made up in it. This is a bag that she made up and is so proud that it doesn't have one hand stitch on it! (Jan only sews on machine) I love the hexagons on the bag and will have to find out just how you sew them all together by machine. We can't wait to see Leesa's new Under The Australian Sun II Fabric Collection, which will be unveiled at the Houston Quilt Market later this month, I have heard that it contains butterflies!
