Applique...quilting? I marvel at it, dabble in it, try my best. It seems I am still just outside the circle of getting it right. Rather than start large like I have before I thought I would try small...perhaps pocket size.
Playful Patchwork is a wonderful book that took me step by step through the process. Gathering up all my little pieces of fabric from an early estate sale by color. I added just a few new pieces to tie them together.
Using the freezer paper method of paper piecing I finished up a pocket sized square and added a ruffle and button embellishment.
Lining chosen from a vintage tablecloth.
Loop attached for dishrags.
Denim ruffle and strings.
Linen backdrop perfect for a crisp look.
Just as cute on the inside.
