    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?

    Very beautiful. I love the way the back was done as well. The sashing is a great idea.

    Wow, it is beautiful. Doesn't really look machine appliqued.

    What a great idea to use varigated thread for the back. Beautiful quilt. I have been wanting to try a QAYG - this has inspired me.

    That is so very lovely. I have what may seem to some (or all) a dumb question, but here goes: Do people ever do the applique after the quilt is sandwiched? It seems to me it would do the applique and quilting at the same time. Please don't laugh. I am really serious.

    Wonderful work!! The colours are beautiful and the stitching on the backing makes it so unique! Absolutely lovely!!

    Just a few questions: Are the applique pieces hand cut or die cut? What is a 'triple' stitch?

    Please keep us posted on how the show goes
