I Dream of Flowers

I have had an urge for awhile to try my hand at circles (horrors!). How to draft them, how to use them – – – all a quandary! The batiks were purchased at Aunt Ruth’s Quilt Shop in Sharonville, OH and Quilts Etc, in Salt Lake City, UT. The flowers are hand appliqued onto the light batik fabrics then machine appliqued onto a colored square. The flower designs come from a Dover design book of royalty free designs. The contrasting circles are also machine appliqued using a double blanket stitch with variegated Sulky rayon threads onto a contrasting fabric. The quilt is finished envelope style with a dark piping on the edge. The quilt is hand quilted. Since doing this I am exploring other circle designs. I’ve discovered a wonderful tool “Ranae’s Amazing Rays” tool sold by Ranae Haddadin from her shop in Salt Lake City. It makes drafting a charm!
