I continue to work on Esther's Hearts Desire applique.
After I finished, I found out that a bunch of other people have made these. Poppyprint has a fantastic tutorial if you want to make one for yourself.
What I learned from my version is a) it works with colors and batik prints as well as solids b) the scan seems to be pretty forgiving of less than perfect points and wrinkles where it's hung. That gives me hope that whatever I do to quilt it won't keep it from working.
My goals for December? Keep working on the HD applique. Get the Double Wedding ring basted and start the hand quilting. Keep practicing my free motion quilting on the pink & green baby quilt.
