This adorable HUGE bow helped build my applique confidence and made me wonder why I ever thought applique was so hard!  It is really quite simple, at least when the pieces are this big!!

This pattern is actually written as a quilt-as-you-go, but seriously I wasn't very confident that I could get the strips to end up straight using that method, so I did quilted it the regular ol' way.
