another interesting applique quilt using circles & leaves - Modern Mandala   General Discussion

Started Feb-9 by Dee in TX (DBRADFOR3); 308 views.

I didn't realize how large her leaves are.  I was thinking about an inch across but these look more like 2.5 or 3" across the middle.  Definitely would make the points a bit easier.

Did you take a gander at the other designs she has in her shop?   They are *fantastic*.   Man, I love all of them!  :-)

Well, it's an early 21st century quilt.

You can date it by the use of that pale gray background fabric.

Doing fusible applique would make it fast, and it would be kind of fun - like paperdolls.  I made a couple of fused raw edge applique quilts several years ago and carried around the fused pieces and cut them out at football games (when DD was in marching band).  But that was before I discovered I liked needle turn.  I don't now that I'd want to do all those swirls with inside corners as needle turn.  those inside points are why I haven't tackled the hearts applique book.  I can do them, but I don't enjoy doing them - I always feel nervous that I haven't securred them well enough.
