Happy New Year!
Hello there! Sorry it's been so long since I've "written"! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday and are feeling refreshed and ready for another busy, joy-filled year!
December is a crazy month for me and I am now feeling rested up enough after Christmas to share some words and photos.
I wanted to accentuate the star formations with continuous curves in the star points, and I snuck a few leaf shapes in some of the in-between-star-points. The appliques had some in-the-ditch stitching s well as some inside the applique itself, to ensure it stayed on through many washings. In the "blank" background, I framed the medallions with some double lines, rather than using a background fill. This was a moderately quilted piece.
