I love applique. I enjoy looking at applique quilts and I enjoy making them. The quilt blocks that I’m sharing with you in this post are actually for several different quilts and they were made by my friend Bobbie Z., who is a Master Applique Quilter.
The blocks to “all” of these quilts she passed on to me for the purpose of helping various charities! She knows I enjoy making quilts to help raise funds for various charities, as well as donating quilts to those in need.
I love the design, color and fabrics of these heart applique blocks.
The wildflower blocks are spectacular. I should clarify that for each set of quilt blocks, Bobbie has made more blocks than those I’m able to share.
And for each set of blocks, I’m trying to share closeups of 1 to 2 of the blocks. Unfortunately my camera doesn’t do these quilt blocks justice. My photographs loose the quality of the applique and my flash in various photos distorts the color. Still, I hope you also enjoy seeing these beautiful blocks. I know I do.
While I admire Bobbie’s applique skills, I also admire her ability to select fabrics, including delightful background fabrics.
I also love Hawaiian style applique. This is one of my favorite styles of applique. Unfortunately I like to make “king size” Hawaiian applique quilts, which tends to take me a year or two to finish. Here is a beautiful Hawaiian style applique block that Bobbie has made.
