This was sent by Diana in England. She does beautiful precise machine applique using a small blanket stitch. The color is so nice; it reminds me of Hammersley China's "Victorian Violets" pattern. (Gee, I must watch too much "Cash in the Attic" on BBC America!)
This is from Chandra in Montana. Her hand applique stitches are soooooo small, it puts me to shame! Lovely job, Chandra!
This is by Betty in Seattle. Isn't the purple floral fabric gorgeous? She used a small machine satin stitch for her block. The black thread makes the design "pop". Nice touch.
I'm really looking forward to the next swap!
