Today begins the blog hop for Suzy Webster’s beautiful new book called Folk Art Quilted Traditions. Suzy is a fellow Island Batik Ambassador and I was very excited to take part in this blog hop and receive a copy of her wonderful book on applique. She has designed twelve different blocks that can be used in quilts and other projects. The Applique Batik Quilted table runner that I picked for my project is called Jeweled and is in her book on page 53.Folk Art Quilted Traditions table runner with a basket of oranges

A couple days ago I shared a sneak peek at my project from Folk Art Quilted Traditions and showed some of the applique that I did with my straight stitch Singer sewing machine that is 65 years old. My applique is done with a free motion darning foot and some wiggle stitching.

In Folk Art Quilted Traditions Suzy includes complete information on fabric, supplies and several different types of applique you can use. All of her applique patterns are full-size also.

She completely decorates her house inside and out for Halloween and will really enjoy these! Isn’t that the neatest candy corn! It is made from wood and would be cute on my Candy Corn table topper that I made a few years ago…….I think my daughter has that!
