Teachers Gift {Updated}

I managed to remove the incorrect number from the quilt (which you saw previously) and can now say that the gift for my sons teacher is FINISHED!

Applique Bird

The birdie has even had his eye attached, and can see. Yay!

Having completed this project, I’ve re-discovered how much I really, REALLY enjoy raw edge applique.

I think it’s something to do with feeling pleased with myself, that I managed to stitch so close to the edge of the applique without going over onto the backing.
Do you love to applique?

PS Don’t forget that charm packs of ‘Twirl’ by Me & My sister for Moda are on sale at only $9.50 (+ shipping) in my store.

  1. I love the way you applique! It is so pretty and your quilting on the background fabric is fantastic! Do you just use a normal stitch to go around your raw edge fabric pieces? I've been using a blanket stitch lately to experiment... I really like it but I am bad at corners and sharp curves but learning is fun :)

  7. What a lovely teacher gift! I LOVE your applique design!

    I also love to applique. Although I recently finished some small raw edge applique projects, my favorite is needle-turn hand applique. Making a Baltimore album-style quilt is on my Bucket List.

  9. I love this tree. I'd love to be able to do this, but my machine appliqué is definitely at the novice level. I've printing out this post and I'm going to hang it up by my machine so that it can lift my spirits as I learn.
