    Ohhhhh just wonderful!

  2. I rather like the look of this . I have tried to enlarge for a closer look but no go.
    I wonder is it one piece layered on top of another .
    Really fresh looking

      Thank you Kathleen!–It is layered–4 different layers but I cut out the back before adding each layer which really reduces the potential bulk.

    That is just gorgeous. Very creative. Is it your own design? And how smart to cut out the layer backs to reduce bulk.

    • Corey says:

      The pattern is French Roses & it’s not my pattern. I’ve wanted to make one for awhile and am finally getting around to it. The pattern suggests cutting out the back & it’s really a wonderful suggestion!

    I love this pattern. The fabric you used is just great! I made one too but kept it small without much in the way of borders. It is my favourite lap quilt for watching tv. Our cat loves it too. : )

      Thank you! For this pattern each block is comprised of the background square plus 4 flower layers. After sewing the first layer to the background fabric you flip the square over and cut out the middle of the background square leaving a quarter inch seam allowance. Flip the square back over, sew down the next layer, cut the backing away(you will now be cutting the first flower layer) & repeat twice more.

    Lovely. I love the colours and the pattern – never appliqued and cut away the back. Sounds interesting.
