|A corner of "Hearts and Vases Quilt" |
The hearts are firstly appliqued to the background squares on point, and then the border is assembled. Borders are mitred - a must when using stripes.
|Simple shapes add to the naive feel and blue leaves add a touch of whimsy|
A simplified "Broderie Perse" technique is used for the applique flowers - motifs have been chosen with backgrounds to match, thus eliminating the need for detailed cut-outs.
