This is my first large scale hand appliqué project and commitment since moving to the beach. I am inspired by my DE Modern Quilt Guild mates, and after several months of hemming and hawing, here goes!
This is a Wendy Williams project, Round the Garden. From my perspective, the Aussie women are fearless of quilt…size, color, complexity, design… I LOVE that and wish to learn/develop this trait!
I am using a repurposed piece of linen as my background fabric. (THANK YOU Sue B!!!) First, I have never used linen in an appliqué project. And, second, I have never appliquéd with such a BIG piece of background fabric.
Below are pix and captions as I begin this adventure…
I am aware that blogging is passe. And that these days, instant gratification is the preferred media feed, but guess what…hand appliqué is slow. There is a slow movement these days too with it’s own group of in vogue believers and followers. So, if you find that I’m not too slow or antiquated, I’d be happy to share this project with you as I slow stitch my way Round the Garden. Thanks ever so much for stopping by.
Always, Piecefully Pam
