A few months ago I purchased a super kit from Coast and Country Crafts and Quilts. Designed by Heart to Hand this festive walling hanging is called Snow Birds, and the kit included the pattern, all fabrics including the wadding, and the embroidery threads needed to complete it. I used some Lite Steam-a-seam 2 for the applique. The DMC embroidery threads were used for both the hand embroidery and for securing the applique shapes in place...
...the tabs were machine stitched in place, then it was machine quilted around all of the applique shapes. Once the wall hanging was completed, 2 buttons were stitched to the top and some twine wrapped around them ready to hand it on a twig...
...and here it is displayed on the wall, bringing a little festive spirit into my sewing studio.
