I, myself, wouldn't spend my time on a rooster quilt, but the use of repros and those one inch squares was incredible. (Aren't repros just the happiest of fabrics - they just make me smile.)
This one was amazing - all about four inch squares reverse appliqued by hand of course. Wowza!
So this quilt (above) was all raw edge applique - sorry it's a little fuzzy. I really have mixed feelings about the whole raw edge thing - in general, I don't like it. I think gluing a quilt together just isn't right. I know I am old fashioned anyways, but I can't help but think - how will it hold up 100 years from now. It is an absolutely stunning quilt. I loooove the design, just not so much the method. Hmmm.
And this one, is sooo a me quilt. It is machine embroidered, but striking to see. I don't know how many of you know, but you should not always fold your quilt in fourths. This quilt is a great example of why not. They become permanent folds after a while. Quilts should be refolded every so often in order to avoid this - or better yet, rolled on a large tube.
