Home Blessing Applique Quilt

What are you most proud of? That this piece got done finally What advice would you give someone starting this project? On reflection I would add a plain border aroung the flying geese as my binding ran into the points of the geese which I feel spoils this piece. I used the flying geese ruler which made doing the geese much quicker than the traditional method - have used both and both are excellent ways of doing flying geese.

  • Just used scraps for the material and used appliflix for ironing on rather than visoflex - here the visoflex goes off too quickly with the heat but the appliflix I had no trouble with lifting off the background fabric. Tried various stitches on my machine but basically stuck to blanket stitch as it sat better. I also raisant cotton rather than embroidery thread and used a neutral colour.
