I started on this pattern in April
I liked it because it combined applique with embroidery
And got the sunflower and the birdhouse done first
I also added more bees and ladybugs
there just didn't seem to be enough!
Then the bird on a mushroom
The frog & butterfly
not to be mistaken with the Heart song
Why is it
Applique seems to go so much faster at the beginning of a project, than at the end?
Is it because I picked the easiest panels to start with?
To be fair we traveled a lot at the beginning of this year
what I brought along with me couldn't have too many moving pieces.
So the patterns with the biggest parts, were the ones I chose to take, so I was less likely to loose a piece.
Frog and turtle each went to Chicago on separate trips
dragonfly was done at home between and owl was done mostly in the car on a weekend trip to wine country
I've one more panel to do and that one seems to be going fast this time I may have to design something to even out the whole as things are not quite coming together like the picture on the package
There are gaps and the whole isn't quite long enough
but that's ok I didnt follow the directions exacly
Surprise, surprise as I was trying to use all my odd scraps of this and that
I do like a scrappy quilt
And using up your larger scraps in an applique panel like this is fun.
I'm thinking more borders & birds
maybe even a rotten rabbit
What do you think?
