Rose appliqueI've been very busy working on the Libby's Garden quilt and will be showing some of the sections in the blog.
The rose is made from batik fabrics. Some of the fabrics came from a piece of ombre fabric, which is really nice because you can use different values from the one piece of fabric and they go together well.
The leaves are the same material I used in the rose in my Beautiful Blooms book. I really like the look of the fabric for these particular leaves.
In this image are other leaves - this gives an idea of the overall quilt. It is based on the tree of life idea where a wide variety of different flowers and plants grow on the same trees and stems.
