Using the same concept, I have also quilted the outline of applique shapes on blocks for extra visual effects when I don’t feel like actually doing the applique.  You can click here to read about my “mark without marking” method when quilting the applique shapes.

Thanks for stopping by!  I shall catch up with you tomorrow.
