This is another lovely from 2009. It was actually my very first applique quilt. I had a great pattern that I found for this quilt (sadly I don't recall the name off the top of my head, but it was a published pattern). I think it may have been called "A Star is Born".
I don't have any pictures of it in progress, but I recall it taking a while to figure out my stitch settings for the satin stitches around the appliques. The fabrics were a bunch of fat quarters that I purchased specifically for this quilt. The only yardage was the white background, the blue dot fabric and the backing.
These pictures were also before i figure out how to take better pictures of quilts! So I apologize for the not-so-great pictures.
It really is a cute quilt. I did simple straight line quilting in the center sections of the quilt and then did some free-motion loops in the outer border. I didn't do any quilting directly around the appliques.
And another picture of this laying flat on the floor. The quilt was about 35 x 50 when it was all said and done. This was before I purchased my mid-arm frame, so its quilted on a standard domestic sewing machine.
