Something new

So I took another class on Saturday from Bev, my favorite teacher at Flash Sew & Quilt ~ this is the quilt top we were learning how to make:



Just what I needed ~ another project.  :)  But I learned something new ~ applique!  We did a simple blanket stitch on this one.  I like the way it turned out and it's inspired me to do more.



AND we learned how to use a new tool:  Sue Pelland's Hearts and More template which made the hearts so easy!  (You can see her video here)



AND I tried a new fusible product ~ Mistyfuse ~ which is a very lightweight fusible ~ great for applique.



I decided to go with a totally different color scheme and went with an aqua and green palette and I'm lovin' it!  Fabrics are from Kate Spain's Daydreams, Lauren & Jessi Jung's Chantilly, Stonehenge and Stephanie Ryan's Modern Roses.



Ready for the next border!

Linking up with Anything Goes Mondays and WIP Wednesday.

Love those greens! This is a really cute pattern and the tool intrigues me. I'm not a huge fan of appliqué, although I've done a fair amount. I DO love Florida! We winter there. Visiting from Anything Goes Mondays!

Your color palette for this is wonderful! Your applique looks awesome! I haven't tried it yet. . . a little skeered ;)

The tool looks interesting and I love your choice of green hearts.
