Qulting 202-Cottage Rose, 1 of 4

Today we had our first Quilting 202 class and are making the Cottage Rose Pattern from JoAnn Fabrics. Two intrepid quilters are along for the ride and their quilts are gonna be stunning.
Janice is using the fabrics that corporate suggests.  I took her most of the class to cut out the 70  5" x 5" center medallions for the top.   Each medallion will be machine appliqued on a four-patch block.  Sure is gonna be pretty!!!

Linda is using some of the recommended fabrics and some others that caught her eye.  She is going to have all her medallions out of the same fabric instead of two different ones.

•  Finish cutting out all fabric pieces.
•  Sew pairs together, cut 4 1/4"  sections and then make the four patches.
Next week we will be working on machine stitching the appliques to the four-patch blocks.
Bring a sample of some of the stitches that your machine might make to attach the applique blocks.  Try the zigzag, the blanket and the straight stitch.  We will play around with stitches and decide on the one you will use in our next class.  Good luck, girls.  You have a lot of work this week!!!
