Merci le Vie is a study in applique. Applique is not just satin stitch. There are many many stitches to be "auditioned" and we will give you some ideas. We're going to meet for two times, then give you time to stitch your blocks and meet back here at some point when we're ready to set it together and put on the finishing touches. Merci la Vie is a precious quilt that leaves plenty of places for you to be creative. We'll guide you in directions that you may have never experienced before. The lady who designed this quilt, Anne Sutton, says "This quilt is a celebration of life, and I hope you love making it. It's a testament to women everywhere and a salute to those who have fought breast cancer. Merci la Vie!"
Please bring your sewing machine. If you have more than one machine, bring the one that has the most decorative stitches. If your machine only has straight stitch and zig zag, bring it! It will be beautiful!
