3-dimensional applique

Posted by Ruth on 10 April 2014 | 0 Comments


Recently Jennifer Leslie shared a photo of a quilt she made after attending my Poppin Poppies online class at the Academy of Quilting. She used the techniques learned to create a beautiful autumn quilt called "When Autumn Leaves Start To Fall". Can you see the three-dimensional leaves?

When Autumn Leaves Start to Fall by Jennifer Leslie

In my three dimenional class you learn about satin stitch - how to get it right! You make dimensional petals and leaves which you could apply to any quilt, just like Jennifer did and you put it all together to create a realistic flowering indoor plant which doesn't need a drop of water - well maybe a spray of mist every so often so it keeps looking fresh and real.

How did I make this leaf curl and create character? I'll show you in class.

Here is my home grown poppy plant that will flower all year long with little to no watering - I'm much more successful at growning these than the living kind!
