My DQS 7 quilt

Based on a design from Material Obsession Book 1, which Leah, of pugglelogic, mentioned, I made this view out the window, oooh, that reminds me, I haven't named it yet;
Window View will be its name.

It's got curved piecing, crazy piecing, needleturn applique and iron-on applique - the mixture of applique is a long story - basically, I was growing too impatient with the needle-turn, and not really putting in the hard yards to learn how to do it properly (sorry Claire and Cathy; n-t-a queens!!) I really need a hands-on lesson methinks!

It is not my best work, but I was quietly pleased with it - of course, hubbie wanted it to stay home - He Loved It! God Bless him! Maybe that had to do with his wonderful suggestion of quilting sunshine rays across the quilt.

Fluffy clouds on the back!

I added some cute sock monkey and banana fabric - I think they would all suit Leah and her family! Glad she likes it!

My mantra is - a good quilt is a finished quilt- the method is not that important to me AND it looks fabulous.

It looks great, love the quilted sunshine.

I think it looks lovely.

The main thing is to find an applique method that you really enjoy - applique in general is so much fun!
