My New Raw Edge Applique Quilt and Pattern

I made this quilt thinking of you! I wanted to make something similar with this quilt but at the same time something that can be made in days and not months or years! And what technique is faster than raw edge applique? (Ok, maybe this one?)

The quilt is 55'' and the flower sphere measures 42''- a manageable size!

Are you bored with my feathers on hexy flowers?

All the fabrics are Kona cotton and the background is white.


I loved that I took the time (wow, 5 minutes!) to mark some circles on the white background and quilt those flowers between pebbles.

It's quilted with Aurifil 50wt. White on white and on the flowers a natural color.

The Jeans needles were of big help!

Do you remember the binding?

And here are a few "work in progress" pictures.
All the pieces were appliqued with fusible web.

To achieve the mosaic effect, I trimmed off a little from each edge of all the pieces.

If you remember this, now you know where they come from.

The beginning!

Yes, I marked the top and then I pressed over markings; no problem after I washed the quilt.

My sister Nina helped me and we made the top in three days.

The quilting keeps the pieces in place. After the design was fused I made the quilt sandwich and started quilting. I tried to quilt as close as possible to the edges.

Usually, after weeks on designing and working on a quilt, when it is finally finished, I don't feel the excitement of the beginning anymore. No, it doesn't disappoint me. I am bored and tired of it, because the quilt was already stitched in my mind 10 times before it was actually finished.
I finished it one week ago and I kept it rolled. Now it's hanging on the wall and I have to admit it is a wonderful quilt! it's even more beautiful than I imagined it could be.

What do you think?

You are so talented!!

This is beautiful and much more do-able for the average person to make due to the fusing method. It's just as gorgeous as the other one. I think you are not appliquing around each edge, but quilting heavily over all of them. Your quilting is so well done, as usual.

Hello, I am a new follower to your blog/site. I just love this quilt, it's amazing. I'm almost done with working on my very first Hex quilt.
Going to be adding borders after my daughter's wedding. Thank you for sharing this wonderful quilt.

Beautiful! I ordered the pattern this morning and haven't been this excited about working on a new pattern/technique in ages. Looking forward to trying it out!

Mary L. said...

You have such dedication to a detailed project. Beautiful!

Fritz Mom said...

So beautiful. I always look forward to seeing your designs, and I LOVE your trapunto book. Two questions: have you ever thought of dyeing the batting, and how would that affect the look of the trapunto quilts? Also, did you design this in Electric Quilt 7 (EQ7)? Thank you. I love the quilt choice!

It IS gorgeous, Geta! It was so worth to mark the circles for the background quilted flowers, I think it gives so much interest!

This quilt is absolutely beautiful. I keep waffling back and forth. First I think a pieced or appliqued quilt technique is my favorite. Then you will have a beautiful quilt that is all thread work, and that becomes my favorite. I have to finish some of the projects that I have on my plate right now before I order this pattern. Otherwise I won't be able to make it into my sewing room for the number of projects lined up to do will fill the room. It's already close to that. In any event, every quilt you do is my favorite until the next one comes along.

Emmajane said...

Wow! Beautiful and clever.

Caroline Heinrichs said...
