I have been silent for awhile because the cord for my laptop went out. Fortunately, my sewing machine was working fine!! Just finished this beauty up for my Modern Swap Partner. I am going to have a hard time giving this up. I am comforting myself with the fact that I have enough fabric left to make one for myself!
You can get a glimpse of the hand quilting I stitched into the petals. That plate is hand appliqued.
Thought she might need a housewife...don't we all! LOL!
I quilted the petals after appliqueing so that the stitching wouldn't show through the back. Did a little decorative stitch with the machine around the center in lavender. I plan on writing the label there. I echo quilted around the edge, and I love the look!
Made some more of these shopping bags to use as Christmas wrap. Just love this pattern, and they are getting quicker and quicker to make. Yup, that is a little rose housewife.
