Cabbage Rose in Cloth

I’ve thought for sometime that my watercolor drawings would translate well into applique.  I really like how this came out.  After drawing the pattern, I transfered it to a paper back fusible.  I then cut out the separate parts of the flower and ironed them onto the blue background.  I used then a machine satin stitch to secure the edges  The block measures about 10″ square.  I haven’t done any quilting yet.Image

Here’s the watercolor drawing that was my inspiration.

 I just have enough fabric to make a couple more blocks. Rather than try to make this quilt (as cute as it is)  I think I will make a table runner or wall hanging.   Then it might actually get made in this decade!   I will certainly share when I have a finished, quilted project.
