Stars is a QDAD design I did in December 2014. (Yes, it’s taken me a year to actually make it.)
It is a combination of machine piecing and raw-edge machine applique. This quilt is a part of my exploration of applique. I love how fast this type of applique is. It only took a few sewing days to put the top together. Now I just need to use this quilt and wash it a few times to see how durable raw-edge applique is.
I had to cut down my original triangles so everything would fit on the amount of background fabric I had. I used Pellon Wonder Under to fuse the pieced triangles to the background fabric.
I decided to machine applique all three layers. I think next time I use this technique, I’ll applique the shapes to the background fabric first, then doing the normal quilt sandwich.
For the back used left-over fabric to create striped piece in the middle, then surrounded it with all the cheddar yellow fabrics I could find in my stash.
