Some Applique on "Rosings"
I held another "Rosings" class at Narellan yesterday. The ladies had a LOT of appliqué to do between classes!
Here is some of their work in progress.
Margaret wanted to make a very subtle and soft version on a beautiful light green background. Here is one corner of her appliqué in delightful soft apricots, creams and greens. Her pot is lovely too.
This is Elaine's quilt. She wanted to use a cream background. She was not sure of colours for her flowers but the yellow and pink and blue she has used give the centre a lift. We sorted out colours for the other flowers and she is now well on her way! Looks great.
This is Kerry's quilt. Kerry has made lots of my quilt designs in class and it is a running joke that every quilt is green and it is not missing from her "Rosings". Like Margaret, Kerry has used a lovely green background but Kerry's colours for her centre piecing and appliqué are deeper and bolder. I showed in a previous post that Kerry fussy cut her urn. It looks awesome! A close up follows.
This is Sue's urn. She has adapted the handles to work in with the pattern on the fabric she is using for her final border. I think it looks like a very special antique Grecian urn. Cool!
The next photos are of Leanne's "Rosings". Leanne loves pink but we also have a lot of beautiful red in this one! It is gorgeous.
Here is Leanne's pieced centre. Wow!
Here is Birgit's appliqué corner. She is working on a stunning red background with lots of French General fabrics, particularly Le Belle Fleur. Fabulous! Good luck to Birgit for the birth of her baby in the near future xxxx
