The Grape Escape by Alex Anderson
When Alex showed us this quilt and asked if we would be interested in patterning it, we immediately said, YES! It’s not only beautiful, but after taking a close look at it, we realized even those of us who are not skillful appliquers could actually make this quilt because the pieces are fused (or glued for those of you who prefer that route) and then everything is machine appliqued. Alex used a small buttonhole stitch to finish off her edges. Now those who prefer hand applique can prepare by adding seam allowances to their pieces.
Here’s a close-up view of the grape wreath:
We are happy to tell you that both the grape wreath and the border grape vine are placed in our pattern at full size, so all you have to do is trace the pieces. There’s no enlarging or trying to tape multiple pieces of paper together. Below you can see one section of the border vine design. The pattern is very straight forward and filled with lots of information and hints. The quilt is 50″ x 50″.
Shop Owners: We think The Grape Escape will make an excellent class. Look forward to an online lesson plan for this quilt very soon. If you want the lesson plan before it is placed online, contact Joen at firstname.lastname@example.org. This quilt is not yet listed in our main pattern page.
Please note: We are heading for Quilt Market in midweek. Our office will be closed until we return. You may order via email, telephone message, or fax. Our expected beginning shipping day is Monday, November 7.
Quilters: For those of you who do not live near a quilt/fabric store, The Grape Escape is not yet available online. It’s estimated online date is November 12.
