Here is another gorgeous applique quilt. This one by Diana Frohn. She did this with embroidery and what a superb job she did. Her colors and fabrics are wonderful!

We decided not to quilt on the appliques because they were satin stitched down. Didn't want to risk the fabric splitting. I did all freehand designs around the motifs and in the centers where I could. All the black is fabric and that's where I quilted.
It's not easy to get a picture that will show the quilting on black. hard to see when quilting too!
I turned off the lights and used the black light on my machine which worked most of the time.
Jamie Wallen has a YouTube about making a sidelight for quilting and I think I need to make one.
Tried to get more light on the quilt, enjoy the views. These blocks are wonderful!
Sadly, I had to let it's owner take it home!
