What materials did you use? scraps

What are you most proud of? The entire wall hanging. I LOVE it. There was a moment when I couldn't decide which binding to use and I asked around and half the people said blue and half said orange. Ultimately I choose the blue because I really felt like the orange was just too much and too bright, and I really felt like the blue just worked somehow. Also I'm pretty proud that after washing none of my appliqued pieces fell off... LOL. I was terrified that I was going to lift the washer lid and find pieces of applique everywhere.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just do it. Even if it's not perfect {mine's not either} it will still be beautiful.

What a wonderful piece Penny! So bright, happy, cheerful. I'd make this a wall hanging for my "space" for sure. Gonna have to look into this - I've never heard of needle turn applique. Actually I know very little about any sort of applique. Time I joined another class! Thanks for the inspiration friend.

Thanks. I messed up with the bias tapes, I was using scraps I had and they weren't really on the bias.. but it still managed to work. It's not perfect but I love it. And I really enjoy the applique thanks to you. AND I have just discovered your hand quilting how-to on YouTube and I am desperate to try that now too.
