This should really pop on a black background!
I've been trying to think of an easier way to do the applique for the Morningstar Quilt. I decided against the technique of raw edge fusible applique (my usual method). This is going to be more of an heirloom piece, will be washed more than a wall hanging, and would need more stability -- hence I am biting the bullet and investing the time to build these flowers with a technique I learned from WendyButler-Berns in a workshop many years ago.
1 step at a time ...
Maybe I can work on these in the evenings before supper? I hate to take precious weekend time.
