It is a good thing the fabric I was given had applique elements PRINTED on it because I don't DO applique! This was another of those printed 'cheater' fabrics. The blue blocks were all part of a printed fabric and all I had to do was cut blocks with an added 1/4 inch around them, piece them together using a sashing and add a border of cute houses from the same donation source.
The applique elements on the blocks as well as the mitered-corner frames on them are all part of the printing.
I did NOT want to do free-motion outlining of the frames or elements so I did an all over free-motion medium meander. It is backed with the same medium-blue showing in the binding.
This will go to the hospital's Passages program - my 72nd quilt for them.
