A Companion Quilt

I am making a small applique quilt to go along with my Tiny Tulip cushion.

Use your favorite applique method. 

I like to use freezer paper to cut out my applique pieces.  I use a White Marking Pen by CLOVER to mark the sewing line. 

Make a stem for the tulip by cutting a piece of green fabric 5 inches long by 3/4 inch wide. Press under about a quarter  inch on each side of the length of the fabric to make a quarter inch stem. 

Cut the background for the applique a little oversized.  Mine was about 9 by 12 inches.  Fold the fabric in half lengthwise and press lightly to form a crease that will help with placement. 


Join me next time as I piece the quilt top together....
