Week Four & A New Giveaway! Crafted Appliqué: New Possibilities Blog Hop

What a fun three weeks this has been visiting blogging friends in the Crafted Appliqué: New Possibilities Blog Hop.  I've been so thrilled that so many of you have been following along!  We've seen some of the most wonderful, creative people in action!  If you are just now joining in, it's well worth hopping around to see what you missed.

Today kicks off week four and starts with Susie over at Susie's Sunroom.  Wow does she have a beautiful quilt to show you and she's sweetened her book giveaway with a second giveaway of something delightful that she made for one lucky commenter!  We've got five more wonderful quilters lined up this week, so I hope you'll pay a visit to each and every one!  

The blog hop calendar is shown at the end of this post.  You'll have a chance to win a free copy of "Crafted Appliqué: New Possibilities" at every stop too!  Plus, I'm launching another new giveaway today here on BuzzinBumble.  I'll tell you about that in just a bit.  


~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


The Walking Tree

It's time to show you another one of the projects from my book Crafted Appliqué: New Possibilities.  This week's project was something I designed to use as the centerpiece of a sampler quilt that I intend to make for my daughter Bean & her husband Gonzo.  It would also make a beautiful quilt of it's own and all those leaves make it perfect for a family tree or a signature quilt too.  
The name comes from C.S. Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia, a favorite series of books for our family.  I found the reference in the book The Magician's Nephew:


“…the deepest, wildest voice they had ever heard was saying: ‘Narnia, Narnia, Narnia awake.  Love.  Think.  Speak.  Be walking trees.  Be talking beasts.  Be divine waters.’  It was of course the lion’s voice…” 


The Walking Tree, by Lara Buccella / Quilted by Julie Degrave

I want to tell you all about what my friend Julie did.  We met each other back when I was looking for someone special who could custom quilt A Quilt for a Hero - a project I had made for Homes For Our Troops.  I found her business, Pines and Needles Quilting, through a local quilt shop.  She goes by @sewjul on Instagram if you'd like to see some really fabulous quilting.

It was not long after I learned that the AQS wanted to take on my book that I asked Julie if she could quilt The Walking Tree for me.  But... there also was not much time left before the submission deadline.  She always has a packed schedule, but she said yes!  Not only that, but she also asked if I had any quilts she could bind for me, to help me out.  :o   She then surprised me by making beautiful, embroidered labels for my book projects.  And... back then I was crappy at hand sewing bindings.  But Julie sat me down and showed me how she does it, using Edyta Sitar's method.  I've been doing them her way ever since. Wasn't that just so wonderful of her to do all that?   :)  So I hope you read this Julie, because I'm shouting out a really Big Thanks to you!  


Close up of the quilting Julie Degrave did for The Walking Tree

For The Walking Tree, I wanted it to have a Narnian, dryad like quality, so I tried to arrange the leaves in a way that makes them look like they are dancing with the breeze.  I think Julie did a great job of continuing that feeling with her quilting!


~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

#craftedapplique

One of the things I want to do is encourage people to share projects they've made using the Crafted Appliqué method.  I'm a real newbie on Instagram and Facebook, and only beginning to figure out how to navigate those waters, so Heidi (Red Letter Quilts) started the hashtag #craftedapplique for me.  It will be a terrific way to be able to share and see what we make with the Crafted Appliqué method!

Another thing I hope to do soon is to put a permanent linky feature on the page tab for Crafted Appliqué. (Top right hand side of BuzzinBumble)  That way you all can link up projects you've made and also visit other people's links too.  I just have to figure out how best to do that.  


~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


Fancy Foot Farm

And speaking of visiting a blogger who has made something wonderful with the Crafted Appliqué Method, I don't want you all to miss one of my favorite people, Colleen, who blogs at Fancy Foot Farm!  Colleen has been making beautiful blocks as she follows along with the Splendid Sampler Quilt Along.  I hope you'll hop over and see her work.  She's done her blocks with such lovely embroidered, crocheted, and appliqued touches.  I'm only going to give you a tiny sneak peek of her Sunday Best appliqued bunny block, but it's adorable.  She fussy cut this flower for her bunny and look how great it worked using Crafted Appliqué:

Colleen is also offering a copy of Crafted Appliqué: New Possibilities as another giveaway prize, so be sure to check out her Splendid Sampler post!

  1. Again,lots of ideas from a wonderful book. I use batiks, mainly, and a wide variety of colours. I haven't done much with a range of matching fabrics . I hopped to Colleen, again , inspiration galore there. And reading down the list,from May to June, I can see some of my favourite blogs there, that are already on my list. Greetings from Jean in a cold New Zealand tonight.

  2. Your quilt is lovely - I love the leaves swaying in the breeze. I usually use a range of fabrics that coordinate - that works best for me!

    ReplyDelete
  3. I usually stick to precut collections. I am fairly new to quilting so it eliminates some of the risk of choosing the wrong fabrics x

  12. That tree would make such a gorgeous central medallion for a quilt. I generally mix and match from my stash but have used coordinated collections in the past.

    ReplyDelete
  13. that tree is beautiful! I tend to not go too scrappy although I just love looking scrappy quilts

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  21. Coordinated pieces....and scrappy...depending on the project. I love that tree!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. The leaves really do look like they are dancing in the wind. I use coordinated prints once in awhile as a treat. Mostly I use things from my stash and it usually works out pretty well.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I follow on Bloglovin.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I don't use collections very often, so I would say I am pretty scrappy :-) Great tree and quilting!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I follow via Bloglovin!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love to dig in to my scraps. Especially if they are solids! I've been known to grab print collections, but only because they all go together so beautifully and I don't have to deal with matching...prints scare me!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love all scrappy quilts but once in awhile I like to coordinate all my fabrics. I love to applique so this book is of great interest to me. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I follow you through Bloglovin.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love using up scraps first. I guess I know I would be cutting into yardage for bindings, borders and backings, which of course will create more scraps from those fabrics, so I choose scraps to make blocks with.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Hi Lara, you know I enjoy following you.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'm a scrappy girl at heart. But I love the look of collections. So I mostly combine both :-) Thanks for the great blog hop and giveaway!

  34. I generally work from scraps and stash. When I use a collection I usually add lots of my own stuff to it, just to mix it up.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I follow by GFC. This book looks wonderful, I'm anxious to learn your technique.

    ReplyDelete
  36. The Walking Tree is so beautiful Lara and the quilting that Julie did is perfect for it! It has been so much fun using your method and now I am off to check out Colleen's project!

    ReplyDelete

    PS - Beautiful collection of fabrics. Dana certainly has an eye for color. I'm off to check out her online store now.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Hi Lara, Your tree is quite wonderful! I buy fat quarter bundles but also have a lot of scraps which I try to use for small projects. I'm always worried I might think of something better to use the large pieces on, and also I tend to forget to buy plains and low volumes!
    Hugs, Barbara xx

  51. I do use scraps for small pieces, but often need bigger pieces for my projects. I have bought coordinated fabrics for some of my projects, but I always add at least one fabric from outside a fabric range to give a bit of sparkle. For most of my projects I would dig in my boxes of FQs, half yards, and large pieces from all kind of fabric lines to find a combination that suits what I have in mind.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I love your tree, by the way! *waves*
    Have a lovely Sunday!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Love your tree! And I learned something about binding from you. I had not seen Edyta's method. Now I can't wait to try it. I tend to use coordinated collections for donated quilts because it reduces planning time. But for my own quilts, I either use my stash/scraps or shop yardage for whatever look I want.

  65. Sometimes I use collections but I prefer to just pick out different fabrics that I like that aren't in a collection.

    ReplyDelete
  66. i definitely like to work scrappy. It is more of a challenge to find fabrics that worl together, though and makes more of a mess!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I tend to gravitate toward a coordinated look, but sometimes I 'force' myself to go more scrappy.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I love scrappy quilts I guess because that's what I grew up with, but I do love the look of matching fabrics.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I follow you on Bloglovin'.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I normally have the quilt idea first and piece with fabrics that suit the idea (normally what I can find in my stash), but I love seeing coordinated collections bundled together like this.

    The first nighmare I can ever remember was when I was four years old and it involved walking trees, so I have mixed feelings about that title - but your tree looks friendly, so I like it :)

    Your friend, Julie, sounds like a saint. She does a great job of quilting, too.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Hi Lara! I follow you on my blogger reading list.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I prefer to piece with coordinating fabrics. I'm still learning, so that may change as I learn more!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I really like both. I love scrap quilts but sometimes the coordinated sets are just wonderful in my book. Depends on what I feel like.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I think I am a scrappy quilter as I use any fabrics that look good together to make a quilt. Thanks!

  76. Hi Lara, I love your tree, it does have something magical to it! I like coordinated fabric collections, but I don't want fabric designers to do all the choosing for me, I think putting fabrics together is one of the most fun stages in creating a quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  81. I started following you by email.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I prefer to quilt with a range of fabrics, so scrappy is my favourite. Having said that, however, I do love the way an entire range looks in a quilt! I've done that with a couple of quilts, and I have a couple more precuts packs sitting patiently waiting their turn to grow up. :-) You know how much I LOVE your Walking Tree quilt... Thank you for this once again SO AMAZING giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Hi Lara!! Waving furiously as always in the throng of admirers... :-)

    ReplyDelete
  84. I'm a semi-beginner quilter and I'm really drawn to the scrappy look.

    ReplyDelete
  85. I love scrappy quilts in general -but my most recent is a coordinated palette quilt. I have to say that I am really loving this one.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I am now following with Bloglovin'

    ReplyDelete
  87. I love coordinated collections, but I'm scrappy at heart. I always find myself mixing and matching different collections and fabrics. This book looks amazing- can't wait to get it!

    ReplyDelete
  88. I find it less stressful to work with bundles1 lol. I loved reading your story behind the tree. It sounds like a great friendship was made as well as a quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  89. I don't know that I have a preference. It depends on the quilt and the look I'm going for. :)

    ReplyDelete
  90. Beautiful tree quilt. We have the set up Narnia books and love the reference. Yeah, I like coordinated fabrics since I'm really bad at putting colors together. My husband is better at that than me! jarvenpa1ne(at)gmail(dot)com

    ReplyDelete
  91. WOW, that tree is so awesome. I love scrappy, more the better. I'm a person that loves color and mix it with everything. I love Moda, I love seeing what they come out with next, what designers they have. Thank you for the chance

  92. I'm a bit addicted to collections - the designers do such a wonderful job making the fabrics work together - I usually cannot bear to break them up.

  97. I can go scrappy - as long as the fabric is coordinated.

    ReplyDelete
  98. I end up trying something scrappy at LEAST half the time. I like making my own fabric matches and cross collections frequently. It helps me feel that what I am making will be unique. I love patterns like this tree that are open to so many color possibilities!

  100. I'm a scrappy piecer. (That doesn't really sound nice, does it??) I have plenty of fabrics in my stash, so I try to use up smaller yardage when I applique or need to coordinate with another fabric. It's rare that I don't like what I've put together! Lara, your appliqued tree is gorgeous! I never tire of your creations.

    ReplyDelete
  101. I'm a Bloglovin' follower of yours!

    ReplyDelete
  102. I'm not confident about my color choices so I prefer coordinated bundles. But as my scrap pile grows, I'm going to have to step out of my comfort zine and go scrappy! Thanks for all the wonderful eye candy on your blog, and for the chance to win! I absolutely love your tree!

  103. I follow you o Bloglovin! Thanks again.

  116. Hi Lara,
    Don't count this comment for your giveaway, but it's a Rumi poem that when I read it with my online course, I thought of your dancing tree and just had to share it with you.
    A Miracle by Rumi
    When a miracle turns its face toward the Realm of Plants
    Life flowers from the tree of its great good fortune.
    And when a plant tastes grace and turns to the Spirit
    It drinks it fill from the Fountain of Spring.
    And when the spirit turns at last toward its Beloved
    It unrolls its bed in Eternal Delight.

    PS:
    May all your dancing trees bring you delight and grace. Jane

  127. I guess it's the genealogist in me that finds this tree design so appealing. You did an amazing job with the design and sewing all those leaves.... And the quilting is superb! Loved reading about your inspiration for this.

  136. When piecing or applique, I usually use my own combination of scraps or yardage because it's more affordable. Thanks for the opportunity to win.
