|Di Fords quilt on the right|
The design for the centre applique is drawn onto the background and the stems are the first thing I tackle.
Today I appliqued the vase, fussy cutting some leaves and a flower in the centre. Trying to turn my points under was frustrating me until I remember the useful tool Wendy would hand everyone in her needleturn classes.... a Toothpick! The slightly rough wooden edge was more successful in pushing the fabric into place where the needle had been slipping. Thanks Wendy!
