Appliqued Owl Cushion.


Hi there.
Finally on thursday afternoon I got a proper chance to play with my new machine.  I made this:


It's a commissioned piece for a lady who has a little girl named Ting.

I love the open toe foot on the Janome its so tiny and gave me an excellent view of what I was quilting.

Such a solid machine, sews like a dream.

                                                                 
                                                                      Some stippling. 


I appliqued the owl using Bondaweb and used the old sewing machine to do the stitching.

 

Here's a close up of the owl fabric.  Isn't it cute ?

Close up of the lettering, also applied with Bondaweb.

I used a lovely soft fleece for the backing and added a 1 1/2" ruffle around the edge.  It measures 20" square minus the ruffle.

It's off to its new home tomorrow and I've already started on my next project - finishing a UFO from ages ago.
I'll show you that soon.
Happy Stitchin' til next time.
Rhianon.
