    This is my first attempt at hand applique - I started small! :lol:

    Each individual flower which makes up the Geranium head is held in place with 3 French Knots. For the veins on the Geranium leaves I used 2 strands of DMC thread.
    Still not too sure whether I am going to make it into a small wall hanging or a cushion cover. I also thought of adding binding made out of the buttermilk fabric to frame it or maybe black to bring out the French Knots on the flowers - what do you ladies advise?

    Tisha.

    Trish, that is lovely, depending in where you maybe putting this I would go for a black edging, but then I always do favour darker colours.

    You have done a beautiful job and I love it. I would go with the black or a dark green

    Very pretty. You can use any of the colors from the piece in the binding. Dark green, red, or black.

    Wow -- very nice! (Sure you don't want to make a big king-size quilt like that???)

    I think a dark green would frame it nicely.
