Default Flower Power Wall Hanging

Here's another one I just finished. I started this in an applique class by Gina Perkes last summer at quilt camp up here in Flagstaff; and she's coming back again this July--I'm already signed up for some of her free motion classes! The applique techniques, including some bobbin work with some heavy, sparkly threads, were a lot of fun! I finally added some borders and got to work on the quilting. This piece finished at 22# x 24". I did all the quilting on my Juki 2010 using a polyester thread called Magnifico by Superior. I really like the sheen it adds to the piece.

Thanks. I did the quilting on my Juki, a domestic machine; not a long arm.

I really like your quilt. The flower is very pretty, though simple. But it makes such a special background for your fabulous quilting. It is just perfect!

Yes, the machine applique was designed to help teach techniques, not particularly intricate applique. That part was fun and fast! I definitely spent more time on the quilting than on the applique.

Wendy, you are just getting better and better. Amazing!!! Your flowers look look like they have texture. What type of fabric is it?

Thanks Linda! The flower and black leaves are Ultrasuede applied with a raw edge technique with bobbin work in Razzle Dazzle thread along the edges. It's really easy to work with, you just have to be careful not to touch it with a hot iron since it is a synthetic and will melt. One of the nicest things about working with it is that the edges do not fray!
