Our guild is making an opportunity quilt. It's a combination of log cabin blocks and applique. We made block kits and invited our members to help us make the blocks. Now, several are using needle turn applique to add the birds and a nest.
Although the first attempt left me with lumpy eggs, I had patient help and a sheet of heat resistant mylar to smooth everything around the edges. I'm happy with how it's turning out now.
My bird's wing still has a needle in it. There's a little embroidery in progress. I'll add a little more to the tail and then pass these blocks on to be added to the quilt.
I can't wait to see it altogether. It's a pretty pattern with the jewel toned batiks.
Enjoy your day!
