The above photo is of a quilt that must have been in the works for at least 8 years. I'ts from the book Fresh from the Garden and was primarily done with invisible applique method, either using freezer paper on the bottom (which then had to be removed) or Rinse-a-way, which I left underneath the shapes. I love the quirkiness of the design, although I hated the small points on the block at the bottom right.
For the corner (shown before the binding was applied) I chose to use Gwen Marston's suggestion to replicate antique appliqued quilts in which the appliqued designs do not curve around the corners but stop abruptly at the end. I really like the result and think it goes well with the folky flavor of the quilt.
Some day I'll figure out how to insert a hyperlink. Anyway, hope you enjoy. Sally
