Here’s where we are so far; the backing . batting and top background are sandwiched together. I use a spray adhesive 505 Spray And Fix to sandwich everything together. The parts of the puzzle pieces are in the process of being fused to the quilt sandwich. As you can see there is subtle color variations with the individual parts of the flowers. You will need to finish fusing down your entire composition.
Your next step once you have fused down all the pieces is to zig zag around the edges of each individual piece in the matching thread color.. You want the stitches set shorter and tightly spaced together. Go slowly, stop when you need to turn fabric and so on. Be sure to pull up your bobbin thread to the top when you start out at the beginning of each thread color change.
I used some free motion thread painting to add details and highlights.
I’ll finish it and show you the finished quilt next time. Happy Quilting!
