Sew along - Appliqué Week 4 - Final Stage

Week 4 (2 - 8 May) task - Appliqué the pieces

It was kind of nerve wrecking at first to get the balance between the speed of the machine and moving the fabric especially when using black thread where all the Oooppss will be magnified. It has been a while since I last used my darning foot to do the free motion (ABC quilt using darning foot) but I was very excited throughout the process. 

Though the result is far from perfect (lots of shaky and uneven stitches) I had a wonderful time working on this project and would like to thank each and everyone who were directly involved in the sew along and those who cheered and supported us all the way. THANK YOU to all the sew along members for taking the time out of your busy schedule to participate in the project *HUGS*

Hi Sue,

Congratulations! :)

I thought the the flowers are well sewn, especially the curves/big circle.. . I like the daisies too...

I have not used darning foot for real work. I tested it once and i think it is a lot harder than the normal foot..

Thanks for organising this for us and inspiring us in completing our work.. :)

Thanks to all too who are with me sewing along...

Ariza - it is an interesting technique kan.. I think it is meant to look less perfect and a bit conteng-like with free motion sewing.. I love you completed product..
