I can now show the applique project that was a secret birthday gift - the Michele Hill pattern from Australian Quilters Companion no 57. It is not a quilt - but a set of four reproduction quilt tiles! I chose to use neutrals/ creams to suit the recipient's decor.
|Back basting and hand needleturn applique|
|One applique panel done - three more to sew!|
I made four of these applique panels exactly the same. Then each panel was wrapped around a 10 inch art canvas and stapled on - to make four 'tiles'. I thought it would be a quick project but severely underestimated how much applique was involved!
