Flower Pots

I can't believe I didn't post these pictures sooner. This is the second finish on my list of commission quilts. I was inspired by the bedding of the recipient which came from Pottery Barn and featured long stemmed flowers. (Hence the name of a quilt that doesn't actually have pots in it.)

I'm not particularly fond of applique but the technique used for this is called "slaplique". You sew a straight stitch a half inch on the inside of your cut piece of fabric. It will fray once it's washed which hides any imperfections.
