Morning Glory: Making Part 8

This month's making is very similar to last month's Part 7.
You will breeze through the steps..

Prepare all your fabrics according to the Templates. You already know by now, but I like to repeat myself: please make sure that you print and accurately construct your pattern sheet before cutting into any fabric.
 I created the 'blades' first, alternating the fabrics as per the pattern
 Then I started on the quarter circles
turning the top fabric edge and using small dots of basting glue to hold it all together as I layered each shape on top of the other, building 'upwards'. Remember as you work and build your applique, to continue checking it against the pattern sheet to ensure that it isn't 'growing'. I always pin my design into position as I work, just to make sure..
 this is what the back looks like
and this is the gorgeous front

I am loving this quilt more and more with each block I make.. I can't believe we're so close to the finish line now..

  1. Just lovely...very muted fabric choices that work perfectly together. I am just itching to do some applique! You always inspire me!

  2. Esther, I am so thankful you are working on the, Morning Glory pattern. You are so helpful. I have started and finished the inside frame, but I am so fretful about the large applique center. I have never done one this big before. I guess I am just being a big baby. I need to jump into this and get it done before everyone finishes. I really love this pattern. Thank you Esther for all you do. You are amazing.
