I have embarked on a hand appliqué project. At a small group quilting meetup I admired some trees that one of the members was working on and thought what a fun project.
So I grabbed some graph paper and made myself some patterns.
I thought a third tree pattern was a nice addition as well.
And let the hand stitching begin.
So I have a nice start. I decided some houses were needed as well. I found a pattern sheet on line and had the pattern increased at my local office supply store by 200%. So I am ready with this new house and two others I'll add to four different trees. Who knows what else I might throw in there.
Hi Donnalee! This looks like a fun project. I enjoy hand applique and need to get myself a new one. I work on it during the winter on my lunch hour. It's amazing how much I can get accomplished during 15 or 20 minutes each day. I look forward to seeing where these go. Thanks for linking up today! ~smile~ RoseanneReplyDelete
