Next, I worked through the weekend to get this far on my Texas medallion type quilt. Yes, that's hand freezer paper applique. I know, what got into me??? Well, I just wanted to do several sewing techniques in this particular quilt. Did you all buy that one.... hehehehe
I wanted to continue the circular impression of the quilt by adding the bough shapes which is my own design. I drew out the shape on drawing paper, did a load of reshaping, added the scalloped edges to the underside of the design and transferred that to freezer paper.
My next plan is to add some 3 dimensional thread work to the leaves of the flowers by threading several different gold-tone thread through the eye of one needle of the machine and sewing very slowly. It works and it's amazingly realistic of the veins on a leaf.
So far it measures 40 1/2 inches square..... Love it!!!
