Applique, I just love it! Especially when I’m working with beautiful batiks like these from…..you guessed it……Island Batik. I have been working like crazy on 4 quilts for them that will go to Spring Market and today I will finish the applique on this quilt. Strings and applique…..perfect!
I am appliqueing all the stems and leaves first by free motion and then I will go back and work on each flower, I’ll be changing thread a lot today. My goal is to get this quilt all ready to quilt before the day is over……wish me luck!
If you have been wanting to make string blocks I have a tutorial for a table runner here.
