A professional longarm machine quilter for hire and some of the work I've done.
I kind of got distracted from the original rose. I want to buy fabric for it and I won’t do that until this afternoon. Still wanting to work on roses I decided to experiment with another rose design. Something I can use for a charity quilt if I don’t like how it turns out.
Of course I had to have help cutting out the pieces. I didn’t know a two year old could use sissors. Well, not perfectly but it’s her first time using them. I have to be sure to keep them out of sight when I’m not around or else she might wind up with short hair.
Here’s the rose I started playing around with. It’s raw edge applique with some scrap pieces I sewed together for a background. The scraps looked like someone had used them for applique before donating them to me. Kind of like swiss cheese until I pieced it back together again.
