Hello everyone, Laura here!
This week on DMTV you’ll find my workshop called Bonded Appliqué: Quilting. In the video I’ll demonstrate different ways to deal with the raw edges of bonded appliqué shapes that also quilt the project at the same time.
I thought you might like to see how one of the samples turned out – I made it into a cushion!
I completed the quilting around the shapes as I show you in the video. For the background areas I continued the grid structure that the appliqué design is based on. It’s pretty simple lines but I think that’s all it needed.
On the back, I found a coordinating fabric and set a covered zip so that the cushion cover is removable. Covering the zip with a flap of fabric is a quick and easy way to hide the zip so it looks smart and has the added bonus that if you zip colour doesn’t quite match the project, it doesn’t matter!
