The Iris Garden Quilt
Just to show that I am actually working on a quilt, here is a picture to prove it. Do you remember the Iris Garden Quilt? You can read about it here and here. I am doing machine applique on this quilt. Can you see the stitches in the stem below the pinned piece? The technique I am using make the applique stitches almost invisible. The white lines on the green leaf are both embroidery embellishment lines and placement lines for another piece. The blue lines are placement lines for applique pieces and also include the number of the corresponding applique piece. The blue dots are quilting lines.
I just love those short little applique pins. They hold the piece down so well and they are just so darn cute.
