Applique Sneak Peak


I have finally started to applique my ornaments onto my bargello table runner. There are a total of 9 ornaments  to applique. I'm hand appliqueing using the freezer paper method. It's the easiest method for me. I've tried a few others but always go back to my trusty freezer paper.




Here's a close up. You can see the red embroidery I added to the edges of the purple strips.


 
I embroidered a snow flake onto this one.




There's some embroidery on both edges of the blue and red fabric. I just used an easy chain stitch to sort of outline the added strips.

The class schedule was just released for MQX East. Anyone planning on going? It was a great show last year. The classes were wonderful and there were many vendors to choose from. The quilts that get into this show are unbelievable! I'm hoping to take a few classes. It's so difficult to pick which ones. There are too many to choose from!

Have a great weekend! I'm hoping to applique a few more ornaments!

  1. I like the different ornaments! Your table runner is going to be so pretty and festive. I've not attempted Bargello yet? Was it difficult to make? If I lived closer I might consider going to the MQX. We are though for the first time coming this August where AQS will be having one of their national shows here in Charlotte! Looking forward it it!

    1. Hope you try bargello sometime. It's fun and not as difficult as it looks. I'm having a hard time deciding what classes to take at MQX. So many to choose from! I wish you lived closer!

  3. I love the combination of the bargello and ornaments--very Christmassy looking I think. I did a couple bargellos ages ago and enjoyed making them...hugs, Julierose

    1. Hope you make one soon! I love how it came out and it's not as hard as it looks. I actually enjoyed making it. It only took me 2 days to make! The applique is taking much longer.
