I having been working hard designing and I have many new patterns to share with you (16 new designs since June!)
The first design I would like to share is called Floral Fusion and features the "Over the Rainbow" batiks by Laundry Basket Quilts for Moda.
I love the colors of batiks but have always been a bit intimidated to work with them. The solution for me was to add the neutral background to the blocks which showcases the rich colors.
I used fusible applique for the floral wreaths. Because of the size of the quilt (73" x 97"), the edges of the applique need to be finished with machine stitching.
While at Quilt Market, I discovered Fusible Vinyl which can be ironed onto placemats to make them water repellant. The floral blocks would make very pretty summer placemats!
Aloha! I must go and pack......
