Best Quilting Moments Contest Winner for March 2014


By Shasta Motova from Columbus, Ohio

For her story of a “Story Maze.

It was a really hard choice of choosing a winner this month. This story won because of the versatility in this one of a kind quilt.

We loved how you made this quilt with one idea in mind and later found out that the design had a maze/track in it as well.

Thank you for sharing this with us.

We all look forward to reading more stories and seeing more quilts from you. To read her winning story please visit Shasta's story.
Remember that this is a monthly contest. You can enter as many stories as you like every month.

E-zine Free Quilting Pattern Before Any One Else

“Easter Egg”

Just in time for Easter!

This is a simple applique quilting pattern. It makes a wonderful addition to any quilt, especially if you want to feel lucky.

Here are the steps to complete it:

Save the image and adjust the size if needed. This typically makes an 6x6” block when the applique is done on its own.

• Trace the design onto lite fusible adhesive. Preferably, Heat n Bond ultra-hold. (Lite hold may be used if the applique will be stitched down.)

• Cut the pieces around the lines. Leave the inner designs to be cut away later!

• Select which fabrics will be the pieces of the applique and which will be the background.

• Iron press fusible onto the back of desired fabric.

• Now cut fabric on the line of the design that was traced (as well as the inner design) so none of the ink shows on the interfacing paper.

• Find ideal placement for the applique pieces on the background fabric.

• Peel off the paper from the fusible and iron press applique into place. • When all the pieces are pressed in the correct places, sew them into place with a tight zigzag stitch (aka. Satin stitch) around the edges of the applique pieces if lite hold was used. If ultra-hold was the fusible, then leave the design as a raw edged applique.

Now your quilting block is complete and it can be used any way you see fit.
