Testing, testing….

The big project is at the stage where i need to decide on an appliqué method, so the weekend was spent sampling and testing.  At least these little pieces can be used to make more cards.  These are a combination of: hand-applique, middle right; blanket stitch appliqué, upper right an lower left; machine triple stitch, upper and middle left and lower right.  Surprisingly, the machine triple stitch is looking like the best option.

Hearts, tones and stitch


  1. Weird coincidence, but I'm just about to start sampling some machine stitched applique hearts! Not as lovely as your ones, which look fab!

  2. Lovely hearts and the triple stitch (in machine embroidery we call it bean stitch, not sure why) looks fab


Thanks for your comment. I love to read them, but can't always respond.
