We were nominated in four categories of the 2022 Fons and Porter’s Reader’s Choice award. Will you please take a moment and vote for Quilted Joy and me, Angela Huffman, over at the survey by clicking here?
Angela & Quilted Joy has been nominated in the 2022 Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting Reader’s Choice awards in FOUR categories!
I’m happy to say that I’m exploring the use of solid fabrics more and more. I know… What the heck took me so long, right? 🙂 Do you love solids? I was a bit nervous picking out the two main colors but I love how they play together.
What I love about this quilt is its simplicity. I especially love how it is a bit difficult to see the two blocks used in the main body of the quilt. Take a look at this preview of the show and see if you can spy both of the main blocks.
I hooped a big piece of fabric with the right side against the fusible side of the fusible interfacing. Then I called up a simple arch and sewed a bunch of them at once. I cut them out and flipped them right side out. All that was left was to fuse them down in the block!
I was all kinds of thrilled when I found that shortcut! Watch this video below to see how I did it.
Designing patterns and serving our Quilted Joy customers well is incredibly important to me. To be recognized for this work is amazing! Please take a moment to vote for us before July 15, 2022. Your vote helps my little business and I’m very grateful for your time to do so.
