I took a break from charity quilts this week and decided to work on my Bending Tree appliqué project. I pulled a picture off Facebook and enlarged it for my pattern. The picture came from The Quilt Show put on by Ricky Tims.
I'll trim this background down and add boarders once I have machine appliquéd it with a finished size of 17 or 17.5 inches.
I really like the batik leaves I fussy cut.
I ended up buying some Mettler Variegated Poly Sheen thread. A bit of an experiment over my usual rayon solid color appliqué thread.
Not sure if I really like the thread change. But an experiment is always a gamble. I will have to see how the leaves look.
I am happier with the leaves in the variegated thread.
The wisteria is in bloom, which means spring is finally here. Reminds me I still have a very unfinished project going that features these pretty flowers.
