The Making of New Bern

The quilt is based on a photo I took of the waterfront in New Bern, North Carolina. It was intended as a class sample for my border class at Blue Ridge Quilt Festival on June 2012.
I needed to make a "simple" pictorial quilt to demo adding my signature multi-fabric borders.

July 20, 2012:

This piece was started in May 2012. This picture was taken as I was finishing the edges of all of the applique.

Working on the border

October 14, 2012:

The border is on! I did not have space on my design wall for awhile, so it was hard to get going on the border, but I made some space and it is done. On to the quilting.

I teach the techniques I used to make this quilt in several of my classes. At Quilt University you can learn to make a drawing/pattern from a photo in my "On Land and Sea" class and in "Flower Power". I call the applique technique I am using "Upside-Down Applique". It is another of my QU classes. Upside Down Applique is one of several applique methods I teach in the Flower Power class.
