Back in April 2011, I posted about making bias here. To tell the truth, I was running out of things to show because I was spending so much sewing time on this project below.
It is a big quilt, 86" sq and all the applique is done by hand. There is 800" of 1/4" bias appliqued on this quilt, as well as serious amount of applique around each of the feathers. It has just been published in Australian Quilter's Companion.
If you look with a magnifying glass towards the top of the curved outer border you may see my challenge fabric from 2011. I snuck it in. Don't tell anyone. Here is a close up.
Definitely not from the French General range of fabric. And, if you're wondering what that is all about check out my 2011 Challenge here.
As soon as I get a chance I will post a page with all the projects I worked on in 2011 that included some of my challenge fabric.
