Ta da! I just finished my last bee block for this month's round of do. Good Stitches, the Love circle. Our quilts go to needy children through Wrap Them in Love. Anyways, here she is....
Do you think she looks nice with the Hexagon Tree? I do. My little rainbow Mosaic Tree is decidedly different, but I hope they'll be friends.
Can I just say that I love applique? Gosh, it makes sewing so easy! I just cut the scraps to size, making them fit together a little like a puzzle, and then glued them on the fabric with a simple glue stick.
Thus stabilized, attaching them with a zig-zag stitch was a cinch. And, with the zig-zag stitch you don't even have to stitch straight - it doesn't show!
The mosaic concept was inspired by this beeeautiful pin cushion made by Corey of Little Miss Shabby. Thanks, Corey! Such a fun way to use up those little bitty scraps =)
By the way, if you're interested in joining us, do. Good Stitches is always welcoming new members to our wait list. We have a few waiting, so I expect a new group will form around the end of the year. Just go over to our Flickr group and request membership.
