Instead of stitching straight lines, I stitch wiggle lines for the details and the outlining of each applique. Gives them all a nice texture.
I stitched/thread painted on each applique piece.
I stitched on the binding with an embroidery stitch.
This is the backside, so you can't read it. I stitched across the bottom "Made with Love by Grandma Marcia 2013" with a lavender thread.

Click Here for the post about the one on the bottom. I will share about the top one sometime soon.
I ordered the applique blocks pre made from Marsye's Quilt Blocks. They are already ironed on to the blocks.
I requested an assortment of different cream backgrounds and light/soft colors to go with my vintage look fabrics. I love them!

I am ordering more applique blocks to make a girl baby quilt next for a friend's "Grand Baby to Be".
If you hop over and buy them, please tell her Marcia sent you!
You know I always share stuff I love! I love her applique quilt blocks!
