Art Deco Flower Table Topper

To make the urn appliqué appear to be more intricate than it is, fussy-cut a stripe to look like ornamentation. For an Art Deco look and greater definition of fused appliqué pieces, outline each one with a narrow black satin stitch. Fabrics are from the Saturday Afternoon collection by Jane Spolar of Quilt Poetry for Northcott.
