Georgann used the tile quilt method of applique to create a panel perfect for an Arts and Crafts bungalow. I drew a sketch for her and she figured out the applique. See a free pattern below.
Our first inspiration was the Mackintosh Rose
or Glasgow Rose; above a painting for a print
by Charles Rennie Mackintosh
The stylized rose was a signature image of the Arts and Crafts movement.

Here's a version of the layered rose in a print from my new
Modernism collection for
Moda, out in December.

These layered, abstract roses lend themselves well to a 19th-century applique
method related to Crazy quilts.
In a crazy quilt the patches are attached to a background
fabric with none of the background/foundation fabric showing.
In a tile quilt the foundation is visible as outlines.

Here's the basic info. You can hand or machine applique.
The black background shows through. Prepare the applique pieces by turning the edges under and basting, gluing etc. so that you have a varying black line revealed, which makes it look like it's hand-drawn.
I am offering a paper pattern for the Mackintosh or Instantly Downloadable PDF at my Etsy Store. Here's the shop:
