I am really very pleased with how it looks. I used a real mixture of different techniques and added both applique and hand stitching as well as free motion quilting.
I learned a lot of lessons along the way as to how I would do things differently another time, which is always very valuable!!
As this was only a very small project, I chose not to use traditional binding for finishing the edges. Instead, I fused some very stiff fusible interfacing onto the back and zig-zag stitched around the edge.
I then mounted it onto mount board (the board used to mount photographs) and it is all ready to be framed. We are just waiting for the frame to arrive!!
This little project was my fourth finish in the month of June.
You can see the other finishes which I completed in June under my page OPAM 2018 (which is shown on the right hand sidebar.) Thank you to Peg and Kris for running OPAM which keeps a tally of all the finished projects of those participating.
I am very excited now to get started on my next project! I have so many ideas but it has been so hot here the last few days, I haven't really felt like sitting in my sewing room! I know I won't be able to resist for long though..... !!
