One of the kits that I purchased last year from Coast and Country Crafts and Quilts was Clothesline Quilter, by Heart to Hand. The kit included the pattern for this pretty wallhanging, along with fabrics, embroidery threads, buttons and ribbon trimmings. The facial features of the "doll" were hand embroidered, and the face appliqued onto the background frabric. The layers were then build up, and the final embellishment were the ribbons and buttons...
...I don't stitch much wool applique, but I really enjoyed making these wool pennies. Once they were embroidered and had a backing added, they were attached to the lower edge of the wallhanging with buttons...
...a quick rummage in my craft box and I found a couple of wooden dolly pegs, and a length of twine was sourced from Mr F's gardening supplies! Now the Clothesline Quilter is ready to display in my serwing studio.
