Barb appliqued this cute little quilt to drape over a rocking chair in her kitchen. The 30's repoduction fabrics are perfect. All the fabrics are from a Pat Sloan collection. It's 56 x 56.
There are so many cute fusible appliques. I outlined every piece to be sure it stays on, and quilted a dense fill in the background to make those appliques pop.
I added swirls to the dots on the butterflies
stems on the leaves
swirls in the flower centers
waves on the boat - love the fussing cutting of the sail fabric
I did a piano key border, with feathers in the narrow red border:
The backing carries the theme from the front.
