Applique Block of the Month Quilt

Beverly took a class on applique a number of years ago and this beautiful top was the result.  I was delighted to help her finish it!

This design was taught as a block of the month, so there are a number of different blocks.  Some are pieced and some are applique.  Beverly didn’t want me to quilt over her applique but did want a simple overall design on the quilt, so meandering was the best choice.

Look at the applique technique…it’s perfect.  The technique appears to be freezer paper applique.  I decreased the size of the meander around the applique so that I could get up close and give the effect of stitching in the ditch without actually doing it.  I also used a smaller meander inside the wreaths.  This helps her applique stand out from the background.

I used a soft, light gold thread for the quilting on this quilt.  There are some areas where it is a little more visible, such as on the darker blue, but in most of the fabrics, it disappears.

Thank you, Beverly, for bringing this beautiful quilt to me for quilting!
