Shadow Applique Sugar Bowls.

Here is another of my samples from November - on the image transfer theme.
The photos of the sugar bowls were transferred onto lightweight vilene and cut out carefully. They were then bondawebbed onto squares of hand dyed fabric. I have used pink and purple squares. The squares were joined into a four patch and then covered with a red net with sequins. I quilted around each sugar bowl.

Although this is a simple technique I love the quirky design - it always makes me smile when I look at it! I think using the images for shadow applique works really well as it softens the look and feel of the vilene.


  1. Hi! Greetings from Finland! I love the quilt! It's fantastic. The colours are lovely. Happy to see it. I was smiling and looking it.

  2. Dear Janet
    This blog is lovely and so helpful. I am part way through a city and guilds 7113 and struggling with the design element. Looking at your blog has helped me see a way to move my own in-depth focus forward - although mine is on a different topic I can see how to move on. Thank you SO much.
