Though I have made many quilts, I have not learned the art of applique. My first attempt is not looking as well as I would like. Before I pick it apart a second time, I would appreciate advice. I am doing a family tree with names on branches and leaves. The trunk of the tree is the length of the wall hanging approx 50 inchs. I have a very nice tunnel going on behind that tree. It looks better than the first attempt but still has a way to go before my 90 year old mother-in-law gets it for her birthday. (Saturday) Help is needed. My thanks in advance to you.
