Quilt tester: Laura Boehnke

For the leaves in a neutral-color, fusible-applique version of A Delightful Pairing, play up the differences in five fabrics. Some leaves are cut from fabric with texture, such as moire, crackle, and ikat. Fussy-cut a floral to create leaves that look like buds and cut around leaf motifs, positioning the veins down the center of the leaf appliques.
