The borders went on the Twisted Wreath this afternoon. I enjoyed making it and will probably make another when the new Christmas fabric comes in. Now I just have to figure out how I want to quilt it.
Remember the reverse applique bird from earlier in the month?
One of my friends asked if I could make an owl or a pelican. Well .... it seems like everyone is making owls these days, so I'm making a pelican. I string pieced another under-layer and worked on drawing a pelican silhouette. I found some ideas on Google images to get me started, then drew my own. This was about the 3rd or 4th try. I like it now.
Here's the top layer added to the pile. I will baste around the entire outline 1/4" out from the drawn line and then begin the applique process.
