This week my mom is the first photo - it's a WOW WIP!
Love those jewel tones, if you look close you can see where she is going to quilt the black areas.
It's a Celtic braid design - nice.
And of course her mitered border is perfect (unlike mine would be)
Now that the fun part is done, we will see how long it takes for her to quilt it;-)
This is her finish - its from a pattern kit called "up north"
I love. It but she says its full of a lot of glue and layers of fabric and is really heavy.
She says she will never do another, apparently it's a different process than the usual fusible or freezer paper appliqué and she didn't like it. It came out good though.
I'm working on a new design (or two) hopefully to eventually make them into a PDF pattern and tutorial to sell on craftsy. Above is the first and I'm not thrilled with it - needs some tweaking. The creature in the tree is alittle weird but I may like it better once its quilting, that will add more definition. First I was going to make a honey pot but not sure. Also I think the background is not enough contrast. I will make another before I decide whether to go forward with a pattern. What do you think? I would love any input - constructive criticism is always a very welcome thing. I know there is something I don't like but can't figure out what it is.
The other is a chickadee that is still only in the beginning phase. I'll have more to show in that next week, so stay tuned!
and happy national button day on November 16th (who knew!)
