Oh, do I ever have another gorgeous quilt to share!!!  It is actually a quilt that I quilted last year…Aug/Sept.

Applique Affair by Edyta Sitar.  A wool on flannel version.  This gorgeous quilt was beautifully appliqued by Yvette of BOM Quilter blog.  Yvette did an amazing job!!  I have always loved Applique Affair.  This version is my all time favorite because of the wool.  I was so nervous to quilt it.  I didn’t have any experience with quilting applique or wool…heck I didn’t have that much experience quilting in general at the time!!! LOL!!!  Yvette left the quilting up to me, so I decided I would create lots of texture and movement by adding a wavy echo around the applique.

 I love how the quilting added movement, but really let the applique pop!!  I like how the continuous quilting made the background look like one piece.  I used Hobbs Wool, which I think really gave the quilting a lot of definition.

I couldn’t decide which applique block was my favorite…they all were!!

  I have to admit this quilt looked right at home at my house! 🙂
Before quilting.

You could really see the texture of the quilting on the back.  Beautiful.  I used a cream So Fine Thread top and bobbin.

I am so happy Yvette loves her quilt.  I do too. 🙂

    Both the wool applique and the echo quilting look very good. The choice of the echo quilting was a good one.

    This is absolutely gorgeous! Both the quilting and the design. So did you start from the inside or the outside of each of the designs? Did you quilt around one design at a time or go all around? This is so beautiful. Glad you shared it with us. K-
