Design Wall Monday

I have managed to finish sewing on all the leaves and roses this week, all the bare stalks that are left are for the rose buds.


Next is to  machine applique the green parts of the buds with a very small blanket stitch, I did try to starch and turn them over, but they were a pain to do so they are raw edge instead, I can then hand sew the buds in place.



This  photo of my eldest daughter Emily, gives an idea of the size of the quilt.

Love the wallhanging! My favorite type of quilts combine applique and piecing. Your daughter is a beauty, a future heart breaker. ;)
