Here's the medallion center done with normal raw edge applique method:
|background is really white|
I laid the cut pieces with their wrong side up and applied the Mod Podge for Fabric, and let them dry.
Next I cut out the flowers with very sharp scissors.
Above are some extra flowers above that I will use later. You can see that these would be difficult to turn a seam allowance under to make Broderie Perse in the traditional way - all those tiny stems and curves.
Then the hard part - deciding what the order of my flowers would be. But once decided, placed and ironed on, I was done. I'm so glad I tried this new method. I'll be using it again. Oh, and you can go here to see that finished applique round.
Do visit Julie's - link above, and she'll be opening a linky for this month's challenge on the fourth. Now what shall I try next??
PS: The Fat Quarter Shop Giveaway is open. You can find all the details at the top of the sidebar. Look forward to seeing you there.
