I had designed this center applique section to use when I teach my beginning applique class it covers many techniques using easy shapes to work with. From this one section I can teach inside and outside points and curves, freezer paper on top and behind, perfect circles, reverse applique, and the back basting method with cut away applique.
Here are some close ups of Jean's quilting. (The pictures are kind of shadowey ~ I finished it late last night and took night time pictures with my Ott Light). You can click on the pictures to see them in more detail.
Jean actually quilted it a while ago for me, but I just finally got the back edges finished around the prairie points last night. I have a pile of quilts to bind/finish that I'm working my way through. It's nice to have this one done :)
If you like this quilt, I have a pattern for it ~ you can purchase it here in my etsy store, or here in my ebay store. (And if you are a shop owner, email me about wholesale pricing!).
