Come to the Water

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I have never done a fusible applique or two color bindings and both came out well. using metallic thread for the embroidery made it softer and it blended into the fabric which was the desired effect. First large free motion quilting project for me. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Patience. Stitch down features before large areas. i started with the sea and the movement caused the smaller pieces to loosen so it was much harder to get them to lay down.

What you will need

  • Cotton
  • metallic thread
  • cotton thread
  • polyester thread
  • warm and white
  • double sided fusible
