applique Pillows Playful Petals Quilts

Playful Petals Blog Tour Day 7

Petal Path

Petal Path is on the blog today!–It features Avignon fabrics by Emily Taylor for Riley Blake.  The thing I especially love about this quilt is that the petals can be made using large scale prints–they are oversized petals.

The accompanying pillow is also larger at 24″ square.

I added some of my favorite big stitch hand quilting using 8 wt. Perle.  If you are unsure about adding hand quilting to a project or if you want to try just a bit, start with a pillow and mix it in with straight line machine quilting.

Hand Quilting

Adding in the hand quilting will give your pillow a little bit of something extra without adding a lot of time to your project.

I hope you are all enjoying seeing the quilts from Playful Petals.  I have the last two quilts to share this week and I will also be sharing another free quilt pattern with you all.  And I’ve got a great giveaway lined up for the end of the tour–some of my favorites are on board! =)
