Therm O Web has teamed up with Dear Stella and we have been able to use their amazing fabric collections for some awesome projects this month! I chose to work with the “Wildwood” collection, specifically because of the adorable mushroom and owl prints!!! But the colorway was just my style, too!
Here is the baby quilt I made with appliqued “orange peels” in an non-traditional arrangement.
HeatnBond® Lite Fusible Adhesive
SpraynBond® Basting Spray
Liquid Fabric Fuse™
I began by ironing Heat N Bond® lite to the back of each fat quarter. The size of the roll of Heat N Bond® is the perfect size of a fat quarter!
Then I used template to cut out a whole bunch of orange peel shapes.
One of the prints has some flowers with a touch of a dark raspberry color, and I wanted to pull that out a bit more, so I found a solid raspberry in my stash that matched perfectly.
I arranged my shapes on my background and then peeled the Heat N Bond® paper from the back and ironed each shape in place. I appliqued around each one with a zig zag stitch.
Then it was time to baste and I always us the Spray N Bond® Basting Spray to baste ALL of my quilts…any size.
Once quilted, I attached the binding and use some Liquid Fabric Fuse™ to help me keep it in place so I could get a perfect machine stitch on the back.
Thanks to Dear Stella for letting us work with these fabulous fabrics!
