An update. Susan decided, and I agree with her, that it needed background fill, so I put her quilt back on and added a tight meander in the background areas.
|I so admire people who do applique to begin with, but then to do it by hand is even more impressive in my book. Yes, all those little wedges are sewn together, then hand appliqued to the background and the centers added as well.|
|I'm not sure if this quilt is "finished" or not. I can't decide if it needs a background fill in the spaces between the wreaths and the plates, so I've emailed Susan to ask her opinion. If she says yes it needs fills, then I'll update this photo.|
In addition to all the applique, the outside edge of the quilt is made up of pieced triangles. Wow. Well done.
