Hand applique

home construction and landscaping!  I am working on my third Kim McLean Roseville Album block.  I have “constructed” much of my house prior to placing it on the background fabric.  Using unit construction I sewed the straight edge of the roof to the house top and sewed two of the four chimneys in place, the other two are glued in position.

The windows have been reverse appliqued.

I am getting ready for the landscaping too!  I will use my bridging technique for the trees which will help me maintain their shape without distortion as I sew.
