I had quite a few 2 1/2" strips leftover from a project.
Quite a few....but...not enough.
I did what many quilters do.
I MADE DO!
The cream panel was added
with a vine, a few leaves..
and some fun circles found in a small batik scrap at my house!!!
It all came together!!!
I MAY add a border.
I'm going to look at it and dream a little bit more first.
I will go back and zigzag OR blanket stitch around the applique.
Ironing applique on is SO easy!
I should do it more often!
(The product I used is called steam a seam.)
This quilt is a gift...
Like so many of my quilts are.
They're ALL special...
but this one is EXTRA special.
It will be given to my neighbors who are moving away soon.
They have been the BEST neighbors and I'll miss them.
Quilting gives me a place to grieve.
A place to be sad.
The stitches are a bit of healing for me.
