inspiration

I took a class to learn how to make this traditional applique quilt. I knew nothing about quilting and didn’t own a collection of fabrics, but I could sew. All students used the same design, but chose their own colors and border styles.

technique

All hand sewn edge turned applique, with the exception of some machine sewing to create trellis border pieces.
