This is my first attempt at some applique. The design is a cross stitch design called Brushstroke Butterfly by Loretta Oliver. I quilted the pillow case turn quilt using some of the King Tut thread that I bought from Superior Threads.
My wife - Stitching Noni (http://firefliescatsinthegarden.blogspot.com/) has a truck load of small cross stitch designs so I will be trying some more applique using these as well as some block quilts using the simpler cross stitch designs. Might do a cute little teddy bear next - yup could be in the mood for a teddy bear!
I have been working away on my competition quilt and this is about 40% finished.
I am doing some quick finishes to keep the motivation up.
See you later......
