The full size wall-hanging of the Butterflies and Flowers, based on a pattern and technique by Australian Kellie Wolfhusson.

All the applique is done as part of the machine quilting, so all you have left at the end is some quilting around the outside of the heart.

This cheery quilt hangs in my sewing room, a constant pick-me-upper!

Gorgeous. What patience to stitch down each individual piece. Love it.

Beautiful!  Are the pieces fused on before the machine quilting applique technique you described?

This quilted heart is one of the most interesting items I have ever seen. It is lovely, so perfect.

Mnnancy,

the pattern idea says to fuse all the pieces on before starting, but I found that they tended to go astray as the quilt was being moved around and around for the sewing. I ended up fusing and pinning the bigger ones and then fusing the smaller ones at the end. This worked well.

Love the colors and shapes, the whimsey.

WOW!! I love this. I'm new to applique and have a question about raw edge applique. How do you get the edges so perfectly smooth without turning them under?

I would like to know how to get the butterfly quilt, My daughter, Vanessa would like this quilt. The name Vanessa means butterflies and she loves them, even at the age of 38
