Sketching on Fabric

I have an idea I want to try. It involves appliqué on a prequilted background.

I had more fabric than batting at the end of my piece, so I added some scrap batting and kept quilting.

Then I applied fusible to the back of some scraps and cut out small circles.

I used this die.

I placed the circles on the quilted background and fused them down while the piece was still on the long arm frame. I changed to black thread and did some sketching by machine to create little flowers.

Then I cut them apart. I think they are rather cute. I definitely want to play with this idea some more.

I don’t know yet what I will do with these. I could attach them to the front of blank cards.

It was a very fun little diversion, that’s for sure.

Have a great day!

    Simple and elegant, these little pieces are lovely! They could make mug rugs, or blocks in a modern quilt?
