    T – is it True? H – is it Helpful? I – is it Inspiring? N – is it Necessary? K – is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Pretty. The texture of the chenille adds a lot to the wall hanging.

    Years ago I made a Shadow Cheniille vest, but looking at the pattern the background was all chenilled and then the covered bridge and trees were machine appliquéd over that.... so doesn't really help with your question I guess.
    If you scroll down a tad on this link she gives a few tips for a flower shape appliqué that might help. https://quiltsocial.com/creative-var...bric-chenille/
