Here's what I made while enjoying this week's rainy day weather. This is a Patch Abilities design. Purple Cone Flowers is the name of the pattern. It is a narrow 6" by 21" wall quilt. I will show you the cute wire hanger once it's bound and ready to hang.
This is a raw edge fusible web project. I don't like the way that the edges fray when I sew the blanket stitch around each piece. I have no idea how to avoid this problem other than using needle turn applique.
If any of you have a better way to do this, I would love to hear about it. The flower petals are cut as one piece which makes "real" applique difficult for this design. Julia, do you think the Kim Diehl method could work?
