    Gorgeous! You definitely need to include it in your upcoming quilt show.

    When you say machine applique... Is it fused then machined with a satin stitch or blanket stitch? Or is it what I called "Prepared" applique, which is turned under then applied with machine using a blind hem stitch?

    I always love to know the technical details.

    It's fused then machine applique I used triple stitches right through this technique is a first for me i used to hand applique, so much faster with the machine. Thank you for looking

    Lovely! And I love the batik borders and sashing - they set off all the colors in the appliques without overpowering or clashing. Perfect choice. I think I might have to have it back side up at least some of the time if it were on my bed...
    Very very nice.

    Your quilt is beautiful! I have the Rose of Sharon dies for the Go. I haven't used them yet. Your quilt is very motivating to get started!
    Got fabric?
