I think this is the one where i cut my side triangles too small and had to add the dark sashings to make them fit!

applique is done - need to add a little bit of embroidery (mostly leave veins) then quilt.  Almost there.  I think I've decided I don't like prepared edge as much as I thought.  I had lots of problems with too much glue/starch, difficult to needle.  Especially with the hand died hombre fabric  - not exactly batik but very difficult to sew through (all the sunflower) and many of the leaves.  I had to resort of a finger cot to pull the needle through, also had to wet it several times as the glue in combination with multiple layers was just too much.  Next time I really must just do dots of glue

geesh - I forgot the picture!

I  certainly hope that when you look at it that you will eventually be able to forget all of the difficulty you had in creating it.

I use the glue stick from Appliquick... never have any issues getting thru the's kinda expensive, but worth it to not engage in swearing...

I'm sure I will.  I'm debating about reworking the chickadee's head.  the white is appliqued on top of the black and looking at photos I think it shouldn't be so "round".  I think I can pull out a section and fold it down a bit farther, make it more flat.  considering....

I have one from sewline, but have only used it for EPP.  I also seem to end up pinning some as they often come lose with handling.  overkill

I'm trying not to leave too much behind for my friends to complete when I can't.  Nibbling away at it.

it was shocking how much was left from's a call out to all of us! I have so many projects in work! I am hopefully going to get at least a few of them buttoned down soon..

Oh... I have another grandbaby on the way! My DD is expecting in Jan...a wee lassie this time! So of course, stuff for her takes precedence!!

That came out great. On applique I still use the old fashioned needle turn applique for the most part, no lengthy prep and I find the whole process relaxing.
