Violet Posies Quilt

Today I'm going to show my Violet Posies quilt.  This quilt appears in the September/October 2015 issue of McCall's Quilting.  To get this look, I used batik fabric from the Tonga Reef collection by Timeless Treasures.  I used the Warm Company's Soft Soft High Loft batting, and quilted with King Tut Signet Ring variegated thread.  Such a lovely color thread in soft purples and lavenders.

Here's a close-up of the Violet Posies applique block.  I used the fusible applique method for my block, but you could also sew this with a traditional needle-turn applique for equally lovely results.  

To read more about the making of the Violet Posies quilt, join me tomorrow as I guest blog for McCall's on the McCall's Quilting Blog.  See you there!

Until next time...please visit the Curlicue Creations Shop...and have a super day!

Get Creative!
