First you fuse the appliqué In place
Then you pop the batting on and stitch on the raw edge of each shape. Once this is done you flip it over and trim the batting - very carefully as you do not want to cut through your top fabric.
Here is my flip side all done.
Then add another layer of batting and shadow quilt all of the shapes and heavily quilt between them so they puff out.
This is a cushion for my great niece Kai, who is having her fifth birthday in a couple of weeks, the colours match the quilt I gave her for Christmas two years ago. I still had some of the red fabric used in her quilt in my scraps so was able to use that for the little flowers.
