Last month I did some appliqué work for Janet Frisch of Joy Studio.  Her pattern Seamstress from the Handmaids Series was quite the project I must admit.  Lots of tiny pieces and a three day rush job.  

The stand had lots of highlighted appliqué.
Her dress so much easier.
Her face and hair.  I ran into a bit of a problem with the backing fabric showing through the face and a little bit through the hair as well, Never the less I thought the eyes, nose, and other facial features came out really well.  
And done.  Not a finish for me, as it was mailed off to Janet for quilting and framing. 


  1. Wow! That is some intense applique! You did such a beautiful job of it, I'm in awe of your work!

  2. What an adorable quilt! That must have been intense with all those pieces and only 3 days of working on it! Well done! Love the face and hair!

  3. All that in three days is an amazing feat. Definitely some tiny pieces to work with. thanks for linking to Sew, Stitch, Snap, SHARE.

  4. Turned out fabulous! Thank you for sharing her this week on Midweek Makers

  5. wow, wow, wow!!!

    you do such nice work!

  6. I love her designs. This looks smashing as a large piece.

    I never remember to check if lighter fabrics will show through the background, and inevitably, i just iron some embroidery stabiliser (whisperweft type stuff) onto the wrong side of the applique piece, and phew!
