    Hi quick question regarding iris stain glass quilt. Are leaves put on first and flowers layered overtop?

      Thanks for contacting the National Quilters Circle with your question. When an appliqué design is assembled you always begin with what appears in background. Then progress forward to what is in the foreground. The only exception I can think of would be if the designer gives you shapes that are to be nested like puzzle pieces where another shape would cover the nested portion. Some designers will also number or letter the shapes in the order of the “build”. Before fusing pieces always double check to make sure everything (all pieces) are accounted for – then fix pieces permanently to the background fabric.

      Happy Quilting
