Practice makes perfect

Haven't been doing much blogging lately but that doesn't mean I haven't been busy.
At our Thursday evening class, we are currently learning how to applique. Judith has taught us three different ways,  needleturn and reverse needleturn, free motion quilting  and satin stitch applique, so I have been busy practising.

Sample of reverse needleturn and needleturn.

My favourite 'Satin Stitch' 
We are honing our skills by making a cushion with mitred corners. More of that in a few weeks when I get it finished.
I love learning new techniques and skills and then applying them to my own projects. 
It's been half term week here, so i've enjoyed some lovely walks kicking leaves whilst walking the dog.
Hope you are having a great weekend.
