I have never made a whole quilt with hand applique on it. I grew up doing embroidery, cross stitch, and some applique on my kids clothes. While on vacation I fell in love with the pattern Quail trail and purchased. I think it was the border and colors more than anything sucked me in. I didn’t like the size, or background for the applique. I am making it bigger and the background fabric is 2 different light and 2 med, cream colored fabric. I will be making them into 10 1/2″ HTS and 10 1/2″ pinwheel blocks. The applique will be spread out a little and maybe a few other pieces thrown in. We will see how it turns out. Also IF I can stay focused.
Wish me luck.
