Our monthly applique group met Thursday and everyone enjoyed themselves, including the hostess (that would be me). This is the project I worked on.
When I finished appliqueing the blooms and leaves on this piece in July 2016 I thought it would be finished, but soon came to realize it needed something else. Hubby suggested butterflies, and I had to agree, especially as I’ve always been very fond of them.
I started collecting butterfly prints and recently took my collection to the Tuesday sewing group where we auditioned the choices. This is the first broderie perse project I’ve tackled.
It can now take its place in the queue with the other ready-to-be quilted tops.
We ended up having a light freeze early Saturday morning followed by an absolutely lovely day. I feel like autumn is finally here.
