Over a year ago I bought this kit from Piece O Cake for just 30.00 dollars!! Can you believe it!!! I was drawn to this pattern for it's old fashion look and feel AND for the great price! It also looked like an easy one for me to start with.
I am using the Piece O Cake way by just needle turning.....BUT... I have seen some other very interesting ways to do hand applique that I am soooo anxious to try! I haven't pressed any of the blocks yet and I hope all those little pin holes will disappear....aarrrgghh! I am using the tiny sequin pins they suggest!
These blocks are 20 inches! I must say it has been difficult for me at times getting all that fabric wadded up in one hand so I can keep it flat/smooth and easy to stitch. I have come to realize that solid fabrics show every little flaw as well.
Here are just a few of my Hand Applique Hereos:
