Quilt Top Notes/Techniques
I printed family photos onto ink jet printable fabric and cut out into leaf shapes.
First on point quilt. Used Tonga Treats 10″ square pack. Squares were not 10″ on both sides. Cut down to 5″.
Used “Perfect Poppies” pattern for poppy appliques.
Quilted in the ditch along seamlines of blocks on point before applique begun. Free motion quilted around applique raw edges. Had problems with skipped stitches on appliques. Other flowers and hummingbirds were applique perse.
