I made this quilt thinking of you! I wanted to make something similar with this quilt but at the same time something that can be made in days and not months or years! And what technique is faster than raw edge applique? (Ok, maybe this one?)
The quilt is 55” and the flower sphere measures 42”- a manageable size!
Are you bored with my feathers on hexy flowers?
All the fabrics are Kona cotton and the background is white.
I loved that I took the time (wow, 5 minutes!) to mark some circles on the white background and quilt those flowers between pebbles.
It’s quilted with Aurifil 50wt. White on white and on the flowers a natural color.
The Jeans needles were of big help!
Do you remember the binding?
And here are a few “work in progress” pictures.
All the pieces were appliqued with fusible web.
To achieve the mosaic effect, I trimmed off a little from each edge of all the pieces.
Yes, I marked the top and then I pressed over markings; no problem after I washed the quilt.
My sister Nina helped me and we made the top in three days.
Usually, after weeks on designing and working on a quilt, when it is finally finished, I don’t feel the excitement of the beginning anymore. No, it doesn’t disappoint me. I am bored and tired of it, because the quilt was already stitched in my mind 10 times before it was actually finished.
I finished it one week ago and I kept it rolled. Now it’s hanging on the wall and I have to admit it is a wonderful quilt! It’s even more beautiful than I imagined it could be.
What do you think?
