    Summer Blooms Applique Challenge

    Summer Blooms by Barbara Persing and Mary Hoover of Fourth & Sixth Designs (JWD publishing, Patterns of Distinction) in yellows and oranges. I changed the color scheme to fit my decor. This was quite a challenge for me & is my 1st applique project that my mentors asked me to expand my quilting skills. Whew, it only took me 16 months to finish in between my other projects! I learned a lot, so Thank You dear mentors! Oh, I'm keeping it to encourage me to applique more often.
    Thanks for looking.

    It's beautiful - I love your colors!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Absolutely gorgeous. Colors are breathtaking. A few questions, if you don't mind. Needleturn? Did you use batiks for the entire project? Just noticed the size, is it really 60"x48"?
    Thanks for sharing this gorgeous project. Just stunning.

    To answer a few questions:
    The size turned out to be 58x46, borders are 2 inches shy of the designers, I probably trimmed too much when squaring it up!
    It truly is my very first applique piece. I've appliqued the centers of a few blocks but nothing this big as a whole.
    Front & back in all batiks. This was a personal challenge to work with so many multi-directional prints! Normally, I work with small prints & have been called a "purist" in the past for being a block maker in so many projects.
    I have been swapping charms in QB for 4 yrs & hope to do a colorwash in 2018, wish me luck, I'll need it!
    hugs,
