Appliqueing Lady Jane

I'm not a fast appliquer, some people speed along and finish their projects fast. Not me, I applique slowly but eventually the applique is finished.

This week I managed to get 2 flowers and 4 other parts accomplished.


I also appliqued some circles in place. The circles are lightly stuffed with batting to give some dimension. They'll be ditched in the ditch around the outside not stitched inside where the batting is.

The blue fabric that was used for the things sticking out the bottom of the large bottom flower is a different fabric from the partial flowers. They look the same in the picture but you can definitely tell a difference in real life.

I'm using blue fabrics I have in the stash, no special fabric collections here here!

The pattern for Lady Jane is found here.

  14. Slow but sure, as the tortoise replied in the race with the hare. And the tortoise won. You too will win this race, which isn't a race at all.
