This is the July block in the Aurifil’s designer of the month program. This month they’re featuring Shruti Dandekar of 13 Woodhouse Road. Shruti makes the most amazing art and appliqué quilts and has a great eye for detail.
This year, the block themes are rainbow, so Shruti chose to make an orange block. I decided to do mine with yellow using the Bread N Butter collection by American Jane for Moda Fabrics. It was so fun to use reverse appliqué to cut away one layer to reveal a beautiful design underneath.
I made a little video about this block and the process of trying reverse appliqué the first time!
I cant wait to see what the second half of the year brings! I got my Aurifil thread ready and am seeing rainbows!
Thanks for joining me for “happy hour,”
