I started Florabunda way back in May of 2010 and have just now put all the blocks together. It was a free block of the month from Erin Russek of One Piece at a Time.
I first learned the freezer paper method of appliqué from Erin.
Erin has a wonderful site with lots of videos about this type of appliqué. She was one of the first if not the first quilter to introduce this type of appliqué .
I made a little cutting mistake when cutting the background for the large center block and had to put a little border around it so it would fit. Maybe after it’s all quilted it won’t be too noticeable. I also put it together a little simpler than the original quilt but at least it is together and ready for quilting.
