Fall Blogger's Quilt Festival


Click on the image to visit other great quilts!

I'm not 100% sure on the rules for the quilt festival but I assume Park City Girl wants a showcase of a finished quilts!

This is one of my favorite finished quilts to date:

I made this quilt for the Spring 2009 Flickr Doll Quilt Swap. It measures 19" square. I used raw edge applique for this little quilt. All of the quilting and applique was done free motion. It was kind of scary at first, but I love the finished result!
I wasn't too crazy about the binding I chose but my swap partner was thrilled with the quilt, so I guess it was a success!






PS. The Pattern is "Bandana Beauty" from the Fall 2008 "Easy Quilts" issue

What an exquisite quilt! Do you have any tips of free motion applique - interested to know if/how you fused/fixed the pieces in place before sewing them?
Many thanks
Danielle
