Shirley told me to draw a leaf shape and flower and to pretend that it was a fused applique so I could practice going around it......so I did and I didn't think I did too bad of job for my first attempt, so decided to quilt my quilt myself. (Nothing like a swirl virgin, huh? .......A friend called me that. LOL I thought it was a riot.)
And here's the whole thing done. This one might go to my swap partner......it's in the running!!
Next time I'll show you Shirley's and then you'll know why I wanted her to do it. I'm positive that hers will be 1000 times better, but at least I tried and isn't that what this quilting bug is all about?
