Misty Garden
34” x 34” 2005


Transparent organza reverse appliqué is combined with turned edge handkerchief linen appliqué on batiste. The appliqué and reverse appliqué were applied to cotton batiste and stitched with a machine pinstitch and a large needle to create a row of very tiny holes along the stitching line. These batiste pieces were layered over floral fabric. The transparent organza, semi-sheer batiste, and opaque linen create varying transparencies over the print fabric. Pieced sashing and borders frame the batiste blocks and border. This quilt with instructions was featured in the July 2008 issue of American Quilter magazine. Machine appliquéd, pieced, and quilted.
