I'm really pleased with how these turned out, applique isn't really my thing, so this was an interesting exercise for me.
So I chose to fuse my pieces and do a little raw edge applique instead of traditional hand piecing. I can hear all the purist screaming at their computers. (please don't shout at me ... bottom lip quivers ... lol)
Although the design is drawn directly from the traditional, the utterly modern fabrics just called for a modern take on the technique. Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!
V, I'm hoping to get my little helper to get these in the post to you tomorrow or Saturday :-) Thanks for such a great opportunity!
