Barb's applique

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.
