DQS9 Start

The Block has been drafted and the fabric has been chosen. I decided to go with Hunky Dory simply because I already have some in my stash. I am trying to use what I have...So partner I hope you will like it!

Right now I am aiming BIG. Depending on how smooth it goes I will do all 42 pedals. You never know, it may end up smaller.

I have also decided that this will be just a 1 sided quilt...I think I will be doing good to get the 1st side complete with all the hand work that needs to be done.

I am seriously considering a raw edge appliqué for this quilt or machine appliqué??? Opinions on that??? I think it would be a LOT easier...

I just don't want my partner to be disappointed with the final outcome.

a raw edge would definitely be easier. It's going to be gorgeous either way. :)

I love raw edge! It's very modern and soft and whimiscal!

HA HA HA HA HA I am LOL at you using up your stash. If you say so but I am not buying it. ;)

So you mean you are not going to turn under the edges of each petal like the tutorial we were looking at?? Do you have a picture of raw edge Joseph's Coat to show me??

this looks like it will be gorgeous! love the fabric choice and also the joseph's coat as a center medallion on a square quilt. and i vote for raw edge applique.
