Anna Maria Horner Showcase

It's my pleasure to bring you my project for the Anna Maria Horner Showcase.


I and the other participating Aurifil Artisans were provided 3 fat quarters of Anna Maria Horner's Passionflower collection and a spool of Aurifil thread.


My spool was 50 wt #1310 Medium Blue Grey, which paired very nicely.


I've been wanting to put those underrated diagonal lines on my OLFA acrylic rulers to use, and determined Dresdens would be a great application. I cut 5" strips. Then I cut a 15 degree angle from the end. Next I proceeded to cut a 30 degree angle.


I flipped the ruler and cut another triangle using the 30 degree angle. I continued until I reached the end of the strip. That's my Fairy Floss Pink OLFA Splash, by the way, in case you need one.


Next I trimmed the tips off the triangles by lining the base up with the 4" mark.


Each wedge was folded in half, and I stitched along the top with a 1/4" seam allowance.


I did a backstitch to secure the end as I chained them through the machine.


I trimmed a little corner from each wedge without crossing through the line of stitching


I finger pressed the seams open.


Using the Clover Point 2 Point Turner, I reversed the wedge and poked out the corner before pressing flat.


I stitched each wedge together along the raw edges.


Using the Hey There Home tutorial for an envelope pillow cover, I took my creation from quilt sandwich to usable home decor.





I used a Clover Hot Ruler to turn over the seams.



I free-motion quilted a layered hot pink solid, batting, and muslin with feather, pebbles and paisleys. I appliquéd the Dresdens to the top using a zigzag (stitch length 2 and width 1) and covered the open centers with shiny buttons.
