Fruit Salad - Applique Quilt with flowers and feathers


This weekend I finished my Fruit Salad quilt.  I've called it that because the colours remind me of a chewy sweetie of the same name.
This is one of these quilts that just happened.  I was quilting flowers and feathers and I just wanted to try the design as an applique.
It measures 60" x 72" and I used Soft and Bright polyester wadding.  The applique is raw edge and it was all quilted on my domestic on the table top.
Here is the quilt in pictures:



























This quilt will be part of my display next year.  click this link to see details.

This is probably my favorite so far! I love applique, and do a lot of machine applique, not raw edge though, I'm going to have to try this. I also love that pink border fabric. Do you know the name of that? Maybe I could find it here in the states. Keep quilting!!!

Rhianon this is just beautiful. The applique, colors and the quilting are perfect! Did you use bondaweb on these raw edge ? Was wondering what you use to stitch them down ? Invisifil ? or matching cotton thread ? Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful creations! Karen

Holy smokes, Rhianon! That's fantastic! I love the fabric in the border with all the embroidery - did it come that way, or did you stitch that all on? But I particularly love the quilting you've done - the quarter-round blocks look amazing.
