Last week, I worked on some bee blocks for ScrapBeeLicious, and one of the blocks had me doing applique with petals. It was on. Once I got used to the technique, I knew I had to make a quilt I’d seen by Lindsey of LRStitched. You can find the tutorial here – it’s so easy!
After cutting out all of the petals, I was ready to work on the lay out! In my mind I was going to use white, just like the tutorial, but then I went and saw a beautiful baby blue in my stash… hmmmmm. I showed my husband, and his inner modern quilter said, “I think you should use gray.” He was so right.
I made my quilt slightly larger than the tutorial, so I used the center lines to work from the inside out. I made sure that there were two inches between each circle, and I worked that blue washable marker. Worked it.
I just love it. Even the ironing part…
This quilt also marks the first time I used the blanket stitch on my machine.
Now I want to applique everything.
I can’t wait to finish this quilt and list it in my shop later this week! It just reminds me of summer and has a completely girly vibe. I love it!
