Applique Thursday 8/25/11 - One of First Efforts
I couldn't believe 16 month olds could move so fast! And she wanted to check out everything! Nothing was safe. Good thing Mom and I put everything below 30 inches away so Lily wouldn't take them apart. She loves to push buttons, and dance. I'll post about that later.
As expected, no sewing got done, but I was able to photograph one of my first applique efforts. It is a round robin my DD, DDIL, and I made for Mom. It's totally made in flannel and the wonderful color scheme is due to my DDIL's wonderful eye for coordinating fabrics. Check this out:
I hand appliqued the hearts on my first round. When it came back to me for the second pass, I decided to do the applique border. The vine is machine straight stitched and the flowers are hand appliqued. Here's a close up.
Mom keeps it on one of her guest beds.
