Needle Turn Applique Sampler

At the Peteetneet Quilt show this year, I attended an template free, back basting, needle turn applique class by Pasty Wall.  She is an AMAZING quilter and artist!

(notice the "Dr. Seuss" Style star points ;) ...I'm told I'll get better with time)

She provided everyone in the class a sample to make.  I went right home and got to work!!!

I decided to turn it into a little wall hanging for my sewing room :)

Not bad for a first time attempt?

I am pretty sure sure I am in love with this technique ;)


  1. You did a great job Marion! It's on my to-do list to learn proper needle turn applique.

  2. That is very good for a first attempt. I love appliqué and have followed the work of the
    Piece 'O Cake Gals for a very long time. Do you know their work?
    ...and any technique that works for you is the method that works for you, I have found over the years. :-)

  3. This is very nice. I love the little star points, I like the handmade look.


Thanks for leaving your thoughts! I LOVE to hear from you :) I cherish every word :) I read ALL of your comments and try to reply to every single one.... but it sometimes takes me a few days xoxo
