I decided that my Tula Pink quilt needed a little surprise and I had gotten a tiny part of it dirty so I decided to use my handy dandy Accuquilt Go! Baby and the Rose of Sharon die to spruce the quilt up. This is the first time I have actually done any applique to a quilt, so I was really nervous about it. But with the help of some Steam-to-Steam I was able to do it. I did a blanket stitch around the outside flower, a split stitch around the middle flower and a backstitch around the center. The most difficult part was the center, there was 9 layers to embroider thru, my poor fingers were so sore by the end of that little circle. I am very happy with the outcome. What do you think?
The only concern I have is with washing it, I'm not sure how the applique will do in the wash. If you have advise on how to wash this, I'd love to hear it.
