This quilt used Method 4, Intuitive Applique, from class. But instead of using block sized foundation muslin, I used strips to make concentric borders. I got to use some of my lace and trim collection too...so fun!

That's really "trick" Allie! I love the way it keeps the eye moving and into a tunnel effect, too. By doing the strips it also cuts down on hiding the seamed blocks which give it that Victorian look. The little 4 patches set on point gives it another twist. I love it! ~OwlBe~
