|I love the cheerful design and made mine in scrappy blues I had on hand.|
I usually avoid applique and wondered if I could use another method because my applique efforts disappoint me.
|I found a free Orange Peel quilt pattern.|
|The orange peel blocks turned out to be a good substitute for the appliqued petals. When squared up, they are 4 1/2" so the topper turns out a bit smaller than Julie's.|
|After following Julie's tutorial, I decided to quilt it with FMQ feathers around each petal.|
|All bound and as usual, I added the two triangles to the upper corners so it could be a wall hanging as well as a topper and added some labeling info. to the triangles.|
|As a Wall Hanging.|
|Still I like it as a topper best!|
