A friend showed me this quilt and I was really struck with it. So pretty, and it had wool appliqué on it. But the picture was pretty fuzzy. So I just sat and drew the pictures as well as I could. When I cut them out, I didn’t use a pattern. I just cut them out as good as I could. It has been very fun sitting and putting these together. I usually can only do two in one day. I started out using clear Elmer’s glue, but it didn’t work that well, so I ordered some fabric glue on Ebay. I only have three left to do, and then the center has a large appliqué in it, so that will take a day or two. Here’s what I’ve done so far.
I see that I took a couple of the pictures before they were finished, but they are all finished now. I used a lot of blanket stitch, but I didn’t always use that, depending on how big the pieces were.
Sooo pretty, its amazing that the background makes the flowers and birds pop!
I. am. in. LOVE. with. this.
So colorful. I love the background; it is unique.
Love these little pieces. I agree with Shelly’s comments. Looking forward to seeing them put together. You are such an inspiration Debby.
That is going to be wonderful. The background is perfect.
So pretty! You do beautiful stitching.
