The Details Make the Difference

In the last post, I showed a little UFO that I had recently unearthed.  It was the partially finished sample from a reverse applique class.  It was a simple flower shape with stem and leaves.  After I finished the flower, it looked a bit plain, so I added the orange layer and reverse appliqued a border.

Here's the finished applique:

Now it needed a bit of quilting.  I chose navy blue pearl cotton and did some echo quilting in big stitch.

With binding on, I couldn't resist adding some buttons in the corners just for fun.  Don't all of the details add something?  And now it's not just a rag folded up in a box!
