I’m chuffed to bits with this small quilt! It measures about 48″ square.
Want to know why it was so quick? I used Heat N Bond Light for the applique and I didn’t stitch the edges. 😳
I’ve done this before with decent results. My quilting this time wasn’t quite as close though. This is what it looks like after washing.
I can live with this. However, I’ve gotten some machine appliqué tips from a bloggy friend, so next time I’m going to try her suggestions.
Here’s a look at the back.
I have seen so many beautiful vintage applique quilts, but I just can’t get the hang of hand applique. So hopefully, I can hit upon a machine method that will work for me.
I love how this fits into my patriotic themed family room. For now, I’m putting it away until after Christmas.
BTW, all the appliqués used were cut from dies made by Accuquilt . In fact the triangles were cut on my die cutter as well. There will be more eagle quilts in my future.
Have a great day!
