Small Appliqued Wallhangings

Made in the mid 1990's, this little piece is hand quilted and machine appliqued. From a book called Fairview Meadows by Jeanna Kimball.
This is fused rawedge applique in batiks and is machine quilted. The picture does not show the beaded centers in the geraniums that I did later. It was from a pattern I purchased while on a "shop hop" with some quilting friends and is one of my favorite little pieces.
This was done in 2008 0r 09. (Click to enlarge)

Whirly, Twirly, Round and Round

I did this quilt several years ago. I first saw a picture of it in..........................
the above book

and was so intrigued by it. After studying the article, I decided to give making one like it a try.
These are the templates that you use to make freezer paper pieces. It is basically freezer paper and gluestick that makes the block. And it is sewn with invisible machine applique. I used batiks for my quilt. The maker of the quilt in the publication is Dee Doebler.

In the January, 2004, Quilters Newsletter, this article and how-to for a similar quilt is featured. I am quite proud of this quilt. (Click to enlarge)
