"SPOTLIGHT ON NEUTRALS" BY PAT WYS

If you had seen my post here

Well....I tried my best to just use what I had on hand....but I did buy a fat quarter for the stems. For me, this was very hard....a lot of fabrics have different hues to them, yellow, pink, etc....



I chose to applique with the blanket stitch which has not been done yet. I really love her book, her neutrals gives a fresh earthy look and I love that. I did enjoy this challenge that I gave myself to go with neutrals because
"I wanted to go outside my box" and I did.

Just now I searched google where you can find her book and I was amazed at all of the places this book is, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, several quilting stores....wonderful book. She made the comment that we are welcome to do it in color, I knew she wouldn't mind, if you have not been to her blog...do go here

  2. Lovely! I have the same problem using neutrals. Matter of fact I don't buy enough neutrals. I love what you have done and think the blanket stitch will be great on this piece. Will you hand stitch it or machine blanket stitch it?
