    Bird on a vine wallhanging

    This was my first attempt at hand-appliqueing, so there are some unsightly angles here and there, but overall I was very pleased with the project. The quilting is free-style machine quilted, and it is all single-line designs. I tried something new and used a bright colored satin on the background. Aside from the fraying threads which I was continually picking out, I was very satisfied with the result, and my husband almost likes the back better than the front! I need to put a sleeve and label on the back yet, but thought I'd share these pictures before I did that.

    Just lovely, Nobody will notice the angles because the overall picture is very appealing. Pretty design, pretty colors.

    What you see as imperfect applique makes it all the more charming. I like it.
