I’ve been waiting with bated breath to show these quilts to you!
This is Moments
It’s made from some of my favorite Teagan White prints and I couldn’t love it more. It’s a reverse appliqué pattern, meaning that the bright prints are behind the white fabrics. Because I attached the layers about 1/4-inch back from the edge of the circle, it has a flange, which I just love. Complete instructions are in the book!
My second quilt in The Appliqué Book is Spotlights. It’s also a reverse appliqué quilt, but it’s got a few improv twists.
I have to say, having spent some time reading this book over the last week, that I’m really very impressed with it! The instructions are clear and concise and it covers a wide variety of appliqué techniques and aesthetics.

EDITED TO ADD:
If you are making the Spotlights quilt, you may find the following image in the instructions to be confusing:
This photo makes it look like the quilt was assembled in blocks. It was not. While the text is clear that the off-white background piece was a single cut of fabric into which the holes were cut, this photo, by showing the edges of the larger piece of white fabric, suggests that the background was composed of several small pieces. Anyway, should any confusion arise, the text is correct, not the photo.
