What materials did you use? fabrics, King Tut varigated threads

What are you most proud of? I love the way the decorative stitching filled in the spots, and I really like the 3D effect of the pleated flat piping tucked into one of the seams. My friend Laurel showed me this technique and it is so effective! You simply press a fabric strip in half longways, then as you are stitching the seam you use a skewer to push forward little tucks randomly in the flat piping strip.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a wonderful way to use up those scraps, and to make a feature-piece for any project. Play with those decorative stitches! :-D

It's beautiful Pam. I've done lots of applique on our grandchildren't quilts. It is a fun change of pace in quilting.

I don't do much, but I agree - it's a fun change of pace! I never did decorative stitching much until I took that Stupendous Stitching course, either. Who knew?

This is a beautiful block Pam! Looks like machine applique, right?

yes! I love that tiny satin stitch with varigated threads. More details above if you are curious. Glad you like it!

Love this -- I have zebras at my house. Hmmm.... may have to try something like this. Thanks for sharing!

oooh - zebras!! My granddaughter is crazy about zebras and has a zebra print with green glitter stripes :-)

This is even better in real - I saw it. The picture does not do justice to the warmth of the scene.
