A New Setting for Appliqué

I am an appliqué fan. I'm sure you know that already since my latest book is all about fused appliqué. When I was in Houston in the fall I found some patterns by an Australian designer that I fell in love with.

Don't Look Now designs are fresh and light; all the appliqué is on a white background. I bought two of the pillow patterns and made them up a couple of weeks ago. They add a bright spark to my living room.

On the left is Wish You Were Here and on the right is First Day of Christmas.

The appliqué is fused, raw edge and I stitched around each shape with matching thread. It was lots of fun going through my scrap bin to find the perfect small pieces of fabric for the shapes.
