Quilted Symphony applique continues. . .

Long time no writing.  I apologize for the time lapse in posting.  Cold season has hit me hard and I have been slow to recover.

Now that I'm feeling better it's time to continue the applique on my Quilted Symphony project.  The circle patterns for this section have been drawn directly onto the fusible web.  Rather than tracing the circle patterns, I found round household items such as a thread spool and dime to trace around.  This is easier for making the circles round.  Press the fusible web onto the back of the fabric and cut out.  
Press applique circles onto background segments.
Free-motion stitch around circles.  I used a free-motion zigzag stitch.

I love the free-motion zigzag stitch.  It is so versatile. Creating foundation pieces is the next step.  I'll post soon (I promise!).
