Jen Kingwell-Inspired Applique

I just stitched up this pillow sample for my upcoming Starch & Freezer Paper Method Applique class at The Old Country Store.  

I knew I wanted to cover the basic shapes (circles, hearts, stars, stems and leaves), but was stumped how to incorporate all those shapes into a project someone would actually want to stitch!  

Thankfully Jen Kingwell's work came to mind, so I was able to sketch out a design in her style that included each of those shapes.

This background fabric is so fun - it actually lists lots and lots of quilt shops around the country, 

including some of the quilt shops I visited in Oregon last summer!

I did a simple envelope cover on the back,

and machine stitched the binding to save some time.
(I'm getting better and better at that technique - glue basting is the secret!)
