Spring Quilt Escape Retreat - Post #2

I hope you enjoyed my post on Giovanna's stained glass Rose Window. This post will feature Ashley, another good friend of mine. While at NJ QuiltFest last month, Ashley brought a beautiful applique kit. She had only played with fusing and machine applique once before, so she wanted to focus on it during the weekend.

As you can see she was very successful...

The four squares will be appliqued (the fabric is only fused on at this point) and then sewn together to make the wallhanging. Notice how with the fabric placement, that Ashley created a secondary pattern, creating a circle in the center with the lighter fabrics.

I think you would agree that she has mastered the technique!

She certainly made a beautiful quilt. Nothing like a retreat to get the creative juices flowing!
