Every row of the quilt has some piecing and some applique.
Notice the block on the left side of the top and bottom rows? I used this tutorial to piece the blocks (see next pic) and then appliqued the block onto the rows and hand quilted them with perle cotton.
I free motion quilted the entire quilt on my domestic machine in swirls, leaves and wood grain. I quilted swirls and leaves on the gray background and wood grain on the pieced sections of the 3 center rows. You can learn these techniques in this machine quilting class.
I love how the applique pops out against the quilted background. If you look close you can see that I quilted flower petals (like sunflowers) on all my ‘mod’ flowers.
I used one Simply Color Jelly Roll and one charm pack by V and Co. to complete the top (with a couple larger pieces for gray leaf sashing between rows) and gray Kona Cotton.
My dandelion was inspired by this pattern also by V and Co.
