Rose Applique Design

Yesterday I drew out this idea for a Victorian Applique style quilt. This is a picture from my sketch book.

I originally thought of it for a piece of 5"x7" fiber art...we'll see what comes of it (if anything). But the drawing is done so that I can copy it, then cut out the individual pieces for applique work. It could also be altered for stained glass.

If you have never tried the Marie Seroskie method of applique, you should. It makes the stained glass method of applique sooooo easy! Check out her web site for samples http://www.katielane.com/. She has a really cute Big Mouth Fish Bag pattern too!

This rose would also make a great resist design. Can't wait to see what you do with it!

Hi Jane,
Yes, you're right! That would make a great resist design! I'll have to figure out how to do it now...I also thought it would look good as a (small) whole cloth quilt. Hopefully I'll try one or two different things with it. Thanks for looking!

This rose is cool! Isn't it wild how we are all looking at it coming up with a different way to handle it?! I would use pastels or colored pencils and water to highlight the edges of all the pieces. Then, I'd use fusible applique to make the scene and then trapunto all the individual parts. I'd use free motion embroidery to finish the edges and then depending on how large the individual pieces are, maybe free motion quilt inside them.
