Applique on scrappy background.
I have never really attempted even a virtual quilt with applique motifs set at random on a pieced quilt top, but it was fun. A new time waster in the future will be converting a lot of applique blocks to motifs for play sessions like the one I had a few days ago.
One thing which surprised me was that I started with very pale, whishy-washy fabrics in the background, but made them brighter after I added the appliques.
I would quilt some butterflies and dragonflies on the areas of scrappy background not covered by appliques.
PS I just remembered the cats who tend to find their way onto quilts … including my virtual ones … I should have added one to this design!!!
