At our MPS Guild meeting for March 2023, Laurie Wildey of 406 Quilts and Crafts came to us over Zoom and taught us Shannon Brinkley’s method of Scrappy Applique.
Two days later, 13 MPS members gathered in the conference room of Bethel Congregational Church to try their hand at this new (to them) quilting technique. The play day was facilitated by our Program Chairs, Christie and Liz. Although the room was small, the success rate was huge!
The theme for the day was Spring; and many bunnies and tulips (and a bird and a cat) were starting to appear as each member cut up their fabric and applied it to their backgrounds. It was suggested that these creations become 20″ pillow tops, but I wouldn’t be surprised if some of them are destined for other things. Here’s hoping the finished projects make an appearance at our Show and Tell Inspirations some time soon.
