Finished the applique last night (except for the bird's beak and a
possible extra leaf if I don't like his legs!).
Started to sandwich him and then thought I ought to take a picture 5
minutes later than I should - hence the one line of basting down the
middle. I've decided that I'll hand baste rather than the little plastic
tacks because of the plainish white background that might show holes.
Its only small so I should survive.
I changed the colour of the heart - more bluey. Its the same batik, just
a different part of the fabric and doesn't jump out as much.
I'm going to machine quilt it, so may play a bit on one of my UFOs
first. Im just going to echo quilt quite close in and then cross hatch
(a bit Baltimorey). The blank bits on the outer border will have some
quilted leaves. Then there will be the fun of a bit of..... hand
embroidery? beads? who knows!
