This Arlene Walsh southwest applique quilt pattern features a roadrunner. The technique is called collage. In collage we find interesting fabrics, like kaffe florals, and fussy cut shapes and images from the fabric. then, just fill in the body using these shapes until you have your image dressed. Fabrics can be glue basted in place with water soluble glue or fused with paper backed fusible (we suggest Steam A Seam II). The benefits of collage are a clearer understanding of values and color, as well as practice using different prints together. The quilt is then machine stitched giving you another opportunity to embellish with your thread choices. you choose your images and shapes, no two Roadrunners will be alike. Here's you're chance to make a totally unique quilt. 21" x 30" Kit includes fabrics in the red range to build your roadrunner. The nature of collage means you will probably want to add other fabrics to complete you vision.
