The Red and Green Finished

quilts, Red & Green Traditional Applique

I finished this one last week but had no chance to lay it all out where I could get a photo until this morning.   Still looks the same but it is all appliqued now – last time you saw it- it was glue basted in place.  Needle turn applique


The center


A flower


This quilt top will now be put aside and will be hand quilted sometime in the future.

    Yep, I like the border too. It doesn’t take away from the main body of the design. Actually it compliments it. Nice!!!

    Karen, I LOVE this quilt! Can’t wait to see how you quilt it. Really makes me want to start a red and green….but I have an “only 15 going rule”. Makes me want to hurry and get to 14, LOL. Your applique is so invisible. Thanks so much for sharing/inspiring.

    It turned out beautifully. The border is just right and does not weigh down the quilt.
