There is a class offered in March at my local quilt shop that I am considering taking. It’s about machine applique. Specifically, it’s about doing machine applique that looks like it is done by hand. I am skeptical that this is possible, but am interested in learning how. The class is for beginners and I am not a beginner at hand applique, but I certainly am with the machine.
Here is my attempt at some fun, little appliques done by machine. They are certainly not meant to look like they are done by hand. Nevertheless, I love the way they look. The are fun and whimsical. The snail and apple have some embroidery on them that I did by hand. I’m wondering if that’s a little silly: machine applique and hand embroidery. Shouldn’t it be all or nothing?
I don’t follow rules. I just do what I like.
