reverse applique with Dawn Cameron Dick
As I mentioned in my previous post, Catherine and I met for a cuppa on Friday afternoon; and the reason Catherine was down this way, was a Saturday class at Midsomer Quilting (their new home in Chilcompton) with Dawn Cameron Dick.
The class was a reverse applique,
called " Three Mad Hares".
Although it was called "Three Mad Hares", we were free to choose how many hares do we actually want too sew and how large.
We spent a very enjoyable and fun day with Dawn, she is lovely and a great teacher.
I chose to make two small hares.
prep work - tracing a pattern around freezer paper
When I got home on Saturday, I just had to finish the first hare,
and last night I finished the second one.
Lets just say here that this was the first time I have done reverse applique, as I was always little afraid of it, but Dawn made it look so easy.
Thank you Dawn!
I plant to make my hares into a wall-hanging,
with some more applique and embroidery on the borders.
