Today, let’s finish up my favorites from the Applique Category at QuiltCon 2023…..
This first quilt took the 3rd-place ribbon……
Cassandra used a reverse applique technique to create the top. Dark blue was the top fabric and light blue was underneath. It reminds me a lot of a Mola design, but without the colors.
This next quilt won the 2nd-place ribbon…..
She started out by cutting a stack of rings in various sizes and then played with the actual fabric until she found a design. The fabrics are Oakshott cross-dyes.
The quarter-inch grid quilting adds so much dimension…..
The first-place ribbon went to this beauty……
Now, I like appliqueing circles, but this one went a bit far…..
The background is one piece of fabric. Can you imagine man handling that while you were appliqueing?
The last two are a different style of applique…..
The shapes look very cohesive but are really made up of a lot of small pieces of fabric…..
The last is a whimsical quilt that I can identify with…..
The quilt is constructed using a “Stitched Mosaic” technique which includes applique within each 2-inch square. The squares are sewn together into rows. It is ALL turned edge applique!! The only fusing is the catchlights in the eyes!!
