Finish It Up Friday ~ The Eagle Quilt

Ta daaa!

I’m chuffed to bits with this small quilt! It measures about 48″ square.

Want to know why it was so quick? I used Heat N Bond Light for the applique and I didn’t stitch the edges. 😳

I’ve done this before with decent results. My quilting this time wasn’t quite as close though. This is what it looks like after washing.

I can live with this. However, I’ve gotten some machine appliqué tips from a bloggy friend, so next time I’m going to try her suggestions.

Here’s a look at the back.

I have seen so many beautiful vintage applique quilts, but I just can’t get the hang of hand applique. So hopefully, I can hit upon a machine method that will work for me.

I love how this fits into my patriotic themed family room. For now, I’m putting it away until after Christmas.

BTW, all the appliqués used were cut from dies made by Accuquilt . In fact the triangles were cut on my die cutter as well. There will be more eagle quilts in my future.

Have a great day!

    Lovely quilt. Did you stitch down the appliqué pieces at all? It doesn’t look like it but …. Your finished design is wonderful.

    It turned out GREAT! I’m surprised to see that the applique survived a washing. That’s my biggest fear in using them.

  5. It’s just so fun to see how you go from start to finish so quickly with your quilts. This one is just a simple beauty! Love it. I don’t do much hand applique, but do find that using a glue stick works better for me than needle turn.

    This small quilt turned out beautifullyM. I was glad to see on your previous post, that you sometimes mark your quilting lines. I also mark my lines because I’m still not that great quilting with my DSM. Thanks for all the help you give us. Blessings. Diane

    Katy I love it! Your color choices are excellent. It gives me more ideas for what I’ve been trying to come up with for the eagle die too 🙂
