Today I am one of 10 lucky bloggers on the Volume 9 blog tour for Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks.
This is the third time I have had a block published in this magazine and this block is the one I am most excited about. Why? Because I love riding my bike. I named it "Go Wheels?"
It's on page 45.
The flag is 3-D and the streamers are made from DMC floss.
I like to use a shiny thread when I blanket stitch applique, either rayon or polyester.
It gives it a little pop. Wouldn't a dog look cute in that basket? (I have just the one.)
I loved this block so much when I made it, that I had to make a quilt using it.
I hand stitched all of the bicycle sayings with some help from a friend, using 3 strands of DMC floss
and a back stitch on a coarsely woven utility cloth.
