|Jingle BOM Applique Block 3|
I think I'm getting the hang of this hand applique. I used much smaller seam allowances, or I think they're called "turning allowances" in applique -- and that made it much easier to get the backs of my berries to stay flat and more or less round. It also seemed to help with the bulk problems on the cardinal's little face. This bird came out much better than the first ones! The scalloped basked edges? Hmmm... I discovered that the stiff metallic fabric did not want to play nice on the curves, but I still think it's a pretty good first attempt.
Time to go pick up the kiddo from camp... Happy Tuesday!
