Eva's Quilt

These are the fabrics I chose for Eva's quilt. Since they are being used for applique, I could find small amounts in my stash and then bought the rest to fill in to make more variety.

The stems are being placed on the background.  They make a foundation for the flowers and the leaves. I machine sew one edge on and needleturn the other edge.

I then cut templates from paper of the shapes I want to use and place them on the stem.  I try to work out spacing this way.

Now I'm loosely basting all the fabrics in place.  I can get an idea how it looks and change things as I go.  I like this method - no pins.  I will be needleturn appliqueing this project.
I am really happy with the colors of  this quilt.
