The time had arrived for one of our girls in our Tuesday Quilting Group to leave and return to her home in the USA. As a farewell gift the girls in the group all made an appliqué quilt block and I made a box for the blocks to sit inside. This was a good way to store them and also a great way to 'gift wrap' the blocks.
I made the box 13" square so the 12 1/2" blocks could lay flat in the box. The box is covered with batik fabric.
I traced the outline of the appliqué onto fabric and using my machine I free motioned the design. This was then glued to the lid of the box.
Ribbon was used in the base to secure the blocks in place.
Here are some of the blocks that the girls hand appliquéd.
Have a great week.
