I won a prize in the FAL from the incredible Rhonda over at Quilter in the Gap. It was the booby prize in some ways. Because every other winner got a shot at it first before they picked something else. I was the last name out of the hat. There was no choice, I got this prize. It would have helped if Rhonda hadn't been smirking so much when she informed me.
A long, long time ago (it's okay, I can say this as no matter what I say I am still older than Rhonda even if she is a grandma) Rhonda bought a quilt kit for needle turn appliqué. I know! I can feel you shuddering too. It looked like this.
Rhonda cut the fabric, and organised it like I have never organised anything in my life.
She even started a block, just.
Then she promptly fell out of love with it and waited years before she landed on the idea that it would make a great prize for the 2nd quarter of the FAL. Clever girl. Now it is mine. Can you actually see me doing this?
Okay, you can stop laughing as I know there are other ways of doing appliqué other than needle turn. That is one possibility. I could bondaweb and raw edge appliqué no problem. The other thing is that I actually quite like the fabrics that come with this quilt kit.
So, if you won this what would you do? Please offer up all suggestions, rude and otherwise. If it is raining up north (where I'll be when you read this) then I will need all the laughs I can get.
