McCordsville, quilt top by Barbara Brackman,
inspired by the work of Susan McCord.
Karla Menaugh's blog offers a class in fine machine applique. A recent topic is how to prepare and applique split leaves or two-tone leaves like those in the quilt above.
The pattern is from a book that Karla, Shauna Christensen, Deb Rowden and I did several years ago called Our Favorite Quiltmakers: Susan McCord.
Thanks, Susan McCord by EuJane Taylor,
Photographed at Quilt Market a few years ago.
The Shade Garden Sampler included several applique blocks based on McCord's style.
