Tear Drop Placemat

This applique placemat is from my 25 July 2010 post.

What if I quilt it by repeating the shapes of the flowers?

I like the idea but not the execution. This is a bit messy.

This is a little tidier.

I like this one. The three flowers are now part of a larger bed of flowers.

  1. I like the way you've palced these pieces. Have you actually sewn them like this.
    That shape and the leaf one are so versatile.

    I've been playing with applique designs recently but I haven't sewn any of them yet. There are several I want to try when I get out of the garden and back to quilting.
