My First (real) Applique
Hand applique. I love the look and always thought it was kind of above me. I took a class with an amazing local teacher (Kathleen Baden) and made a small, simple project and thought.... I can do this!
I'm taking another class with Kathleen. This is a five month class and hopefully I'll finish with a whole quilt top! Yikes! None of these pieces are stitched down yet but honestly, I think that's the easy part! The prep on each piece kills me! I think I'm going to love this, though. I'm taking some creative liberties. The background is supposed to be pieced but it just seems so busy to me that way. It's also missing 24 berries but again, so much going on. I may add some but not all.
The applique fabric is mostly Crazy Love which I have been hoarding for a while.
What do you think so far? What are you working on these days?
