Just a little peak at a new project using Miss Kate by Bonnie and Camille.
This new project was inspired by my Jelly Bean Twist quilt. You can read more about it here. I love how adding simple applique can really dress up a plain Jane quilt pattern. And using fusible raw edge applique can make the applique process so much faster!
My favorite quilt using this idea was my Summer Romance. A simple charm quilt with hand appliqued center, quilted by me. Simple quilts can also be dressed up with the quilting. Click here to see the original post on my Summer Romance quilt.
The first quilt I made using this idea of making a boring quilt stand out was
Spinning Through the Garden. Another one of my favorite quilts so it was only fitting that I give it to my favorite Aunt.
And my most recent applique finish "Scrap Happy Baskets". You can find the tutorial for piecing the block here on my blog. The applique templates are also provided.
See how boring the basket was with no applique? Turn this block upside down and it could be a mushroom. So many ideas on what could be hiding under that mushroom, maybe a ladybug. Applique opens the door to so many possibilities. If you haven't been bitten by the applique bug yet I hope that you've been inspired to give it a try!
