Affair's of the heart - March 16th 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Affairs of the Heart was an original hand applique design by Aie Rossmann. It has now been digitized for embroidery machine applique by Anna Aldmon.
Affairs of the Heart' is a quilt with 36 appliqued blocks on a black background, each integrating a heart motif in some manner. The blocks are intricate in appearance, yet easy enough to be tackled by novices with basic applique skills. Even the experts will find themselves engaged in the delicacy of the exquisite design elements and the vividness of the florals, influenced by the author's Burmese background. Aie (pronounced a) adds scrolls and scallops to her borders. The blocks are a manageable size, so each one can be completed within a single sitting. Create your quilt with all 36 designs or create something unique by choosing fewer designs and placing them on point. The sky's the limit with 36 applique and 5 scrollwork stitching blocks.
