Top is a finish and ready for quilting!
Using a wool batting I can't wait to get started on the quilting this weekend.
Thank you to Lori and Randy for a great quilt-along.
Here is a link to Humble Quilts with a linky to see how other quilters did their medallion quilt and check out how Lori quilted her top!
My plan worked great!
Basted on blank borders. Then laid out and glue basted all the pieces.
The small leaves are fused and the stems are 'tubes'.
Removed the borders...
Did all the machine applique
and then the borders were sewn back on. Stem ends went into the seams...
Lots of thread colors as well as four different buttonhole stitches and settings
and of course a little fussy cutting
