Floral Charm a new pattern



Our project for April was an applique project.  I decided to take one of my designs and make it in batiks this time.  Hope you like how it turned out!  It is 15 x 20....a nice little wall hanging for spring and summer.  Mine is made from a variety of Island Batik scraps in my stash. The pattern lends itself to any type of applique you like to do.  Mine is done with needle turn with embroidery embellishments.  It was hand quilted using the quick and easy big stitch method,  I used a #12 Perle thread and an embroidery needle.

If you would like to learn more about big stitch quilting, here is an excellent tutorial by Sherri Noel of RebeccaMaeDesigns. I thought to write my own tutorial, but she really explains it very well here.
I did use a variety of colors quilt with such as lavender, aqua, cream, and green.

My pattern is available on Craftsy this week half-price....$4.00...for this week only!  Here is a link for you to get your copy of Floral Charm.  When you finish your project and post it on Instagram or Face  book, use the hashtag #floralcharm.  I would love to see it!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have fun quilting today!
