    My daughter's DWR

    I never thought I'd make a DWR..too many pieces and curves for me. But when my daughter got married last year and asked me if I'd make her one..whats a mom to do?? I researched and found that I could applique one. Thank goodness! I paper pieced the circles and am on my way..WhooHoo! One day I may tackle the pieces and curves but right now...this works!

    Beautiful! I think appliqueing would make this patterns so much less complicated...why did I not think of that. Hee, Hee. Thanks for sharing.

    I have never made one but I do know of someone who has and they swear by Quiltsmart. I have not used that either, but a search will bring up lots of info

    Love your colours! Great job with the piecing so far. Will you hand or machine appliqué now?
