    I'm in a new design creating mood. Any ideas for some fall and Christmas appliques designs? I seem to be brain dead this morning. :lol:

    This was the lastest prim snowman applique I came up with but I'm not sure I like it. I think the face may be a little dark but for my blocks I only use the off white backgrounds.

    Depending on what else you would put with him, I think he would be ok

    CUTE!

    What size? I just got a pattern called 'If Mary had been a Quilter' from ebay. I have looked and can't find it there any more, but then I Googled it, and this site has it:

    This is a fair sized panel for a wall hanging, but I think you could reduce it a little if it was too large. Just an idea!

    Pretty Ornament appliques seem to be the newest trend for the christmas quilts and runners. It would be fun to do them in the new modern colors people are using on thier trees now.
    Or how about animals dressed for christmas? I like that idea.

    How about a city scene? That would be fun.

    I think the snowman is just fine. I like the "country/rustic" feel to him!

    I took this picture at a show recently. It is sold as a kit. I do not know the name, but it sure is pretty. A person could add more embellishments and really make a great wall hanging.

    Yes it is fabric and it is gorgeous. If I could do applique I would get it. The fabrics are lightly varigated so it has a wonderful natural look.
