    Please ignore it's wrinkles - it is in the process of being hand quilted and it gets bunched up a lot. This is hand appliqued using the freezer paper method.

    Moonpi,

    Thank you! About a year.. along with lots of other things. Need to finish for the State Fair in July. I got yelled at last year for there being no handquilting entries. Won't let that happen this year.

    Isn't the freezer paper method fun????? You did a wonderful job on the applique!

    Have you tried hand applique using wool? If you like regular applique you will love using the wool - no turning under.
