This is our newest project - a watercolor quilt for Easter. For this wall quilt, we used the machine embroidery designs Cutwork Easter Eggs, and flowers from Flower Embelishment Set III and Flower Embelishment Set II.
The finished size of the quilt is 29" x 38".
First we cut light blue and bright green fabrics into 2" x 2" squares and arranged them on 2" Quilt Fuse, a fusible non-woven layout grid.
After we sewed the background, we added Easter-themed borders, featuring baskets with easter eggs and bunnies.
Then we made the embroideries of the balloons and flowers. For the ballons, we used the Cutwork Lace designs from the Easter Egg Set.
The flowers are from Flower Embelishment Set III and Flower Embelishment Set II.
Then we put together an applique bunny. We used cotton flannel and Lite Steam-A-Seam 2 fusible web.
When embroidery and applique were ready, we pressed it and made a quilt sandwich. We quilted the workpiece all around.
Then, we pressed the piece again, squared it, and finished the raw edges.
The final touch was to attach satin ribbons as balloon strings and glue a plastic eye to the bunny.
