A day of appliqué

To celebrate Canada Day I spent the entire afternoon and evening in the sewing room. I am so happy to have my sewing mojo back. :)

I borrowed the book Applique Delights from our quilt guild for the summer and attempted my first NON-fusible appliqué project(needle turn hand stitched). It is really fun, and rewarding. I love the folk-art quality of hand stitching pieces to the background. Beautiful! If I do say so myself. I will definitely be using this technique again. I'm sure I still have a lot to learn.

This is little quilt # 1 of what I hope to be a whole wall of quilted wonders.

We did get ice cream last night and drive out to see fireworks. Happy Birthday Canada!
