Quarter section of a quilt I just finished
by Mary Elizabeth Kinch and Biz Storms
It takes a lot of scraps to make these big arches. I've been slowly going through all my scrap piles and I have been sorting the smaller pieces that remind me of autumn colors into light and dark bags for these arches. When I think I have enough for four peels I make the blocks. I tape telephone book pages together to make the big arch foundations.
I try to do a little hand work each night before bed to relax. Applique isn't my usual type of project but these peels needed to be appliqued to the background fabric so it has been my hand work of choice the past couple of evenings.
Two down and two to go!
(And now back to my regularly scheduled hand work projects - embroidery and crochet and quilt bindings until it gets cooler and I go back to hand quilting).
