I just finished this embroidery machine appliqued quilt and just couldn't find a fabric that was good for both the front and back. So I did a two sided binding and like how it turned out.





I don't do this often so it took me awhile to remember how to do it. So I documented how to do it on my blog for future reference. Here is how to do it if you want to see how.

Thanks Mufffet. This was a pattern from Smith Street Designs - Bright Hope. It was for a baby quilt but I enlarged it to 40 X 60 for a lap quilt. It was shown in pale colors but I had all these batiks in my stash and decided to make it very bright - unusal for my tastes but I also love it, much to my surprise. The pattern showed a laborius way to do the appliques but I did it my own way.

Oooooo I LOVE your applique quilt!

What a GREAT idea on the binding, it looks beautiful. Great job!

Now please share how you did your applique? And what was the more difficult way the instructions called for?

Well the pattern instructed one to make templates of the 5 different flowers, then trace and cut them out of fusible web, and then iron the pieces onto each block as you stitched each stage of the design. Really!! I had 24 flowers to applique - I would still be doing them. So I just layed the flower fabric onto the block and stitched the first thread - unhooped and cut close to the stitching line with applique scissors- rehooped and finished satin stitching, etc. It worked fine and of course, was much faster. Luckily I have 2 embroidery machines and by using both of them I was able to be cutting one while the other was stitching and made quick work of it all.

I just got an invitation to a baby shower today and the theme is elephants. So I think I will take this pattern and applique several different elephants in the blocks where this quilt has the flowers. I think it should be adorable if I use the right colors. Theme of the baby room is yellow and gray but I will introduce a few other colors into the quilt, maybe green and lavendar since they do not know the sex of the baby.
