    Hi,

    Finally completed my French Roses quilt. I used fabrics that I hoped would compliment the style of raw edges. Two of the photos show it before it was washed, and one shows the effect after washing. My husband really likes the look after the wash. I'm sure it will look even better after additional washes.

    did you use any type of stabilizer to get your stitching done before washing? Or just place the fabrics and sew? I have done some raw-edge for my daughter, but usually use the Thermo-bond lite and sew to the edges... hers doesn't fray hardly at all (like her Hello Kitty stuff)... but this is really pretty!

    I have the pattern to make French Roses too and haven't gotten around to it yet. But yours is an inspiration for me to start on it. It is very pretty came out great I really like it. Thanks for the after washing picture too I wondered how mine would look after I washed it and now I have an idea of how it turns out.

    Hi,

    Thank-you. I added a couple of close-up pics to reveal the detail of the fraying.

    Hi,

    I didn't use any stabilizer, just sewed on each layer. Then quilted each layer so there is extra stitching to help with any excess fraying. :)

    I like that!! Applique that I don't have to worry about bonding, turning, or perfect edges. And it's a 3d effect.

    Gonna have to try that.

    Love it. I have seen the roses done with several fabrics in one, I like that you used 2 per rose.
    I just finished one as well, took it to be quilted today.
    Lovely!

    I love your quilt. I did two quilts with the raw edge applique and they turn out beautiful. I really like how big the flowers are on your quilt.

    Very pretty choice of fabrics for this. They get softer each time they're washed.
