I purchased the most darling Christmas Express applique pattern from Holly Hill Quilt Designs at PIQF this year. I modified it for a special recipient in mind. I think they will love it.
I used to love applique, but haven't done it in awhile. I used the freezer paper method and tried basting glue for the very first time. And there is no going back! The days with pins will not be missed! I cannot wait to stitch this down onto my new 30's reproduction background fabric from my LQS.
The weather in my area has been outstanding. I hope you are enjoying your weekend doing what you love. Talk soon.
