I often use this way of quilting as it makes each piece so easy to handle and I can vary the backing fabric.
Here is my appliqued heart. I used a printed nine patch for the background. I really enjoyed needleturning this, something I haven't done for a while. As I quilt I'm going to add more embellishements, no ideas yet, it will just 'evolve'.
I love this wonderful red against the brown linen look fabric. you can just see a peek of the backing, it a plaid homespun.
I hope to get lots of work done on this over the next two weeks. I'm off to Winchester to run my friends Bed and Breakfast while she has a holiday. I hope to show you lots of this beautiful city while I'm there.
Lets not forget the bears!!
and this is 'Arthur' who is made of wool and is a little worn and frayed.
(sorry for blurry pic... camera wobble)
I'm off now to do a little more research on my family tree, something I've always wanted to do. So far I have found Russian and Irish connections, exciting eh!!
Have a great week. xox Angela.
