Say Cheese! + Giveaway September 10 2014, 29 Comments

Here is the second quilt we had featured in the Quilts from Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Fall 2014 issue. Today, I am going to share the quilt I designed for the issue, Say Cheese! I used my most recent 12" appliqué block, Aperature, and built the camera around it! Here is the original block: 

Using basic piecing and a few curves, I created a camera shape background for a large appliqué aperture to be sewn on to. I added some white space and large flying geese to the top and bottom to the make the quilt a square wall-hanging.
