Beautiful Bright Colours!
While I worked in my sewing room today I could see a pair of beautiful rainbow lorikeets eating the red berries in my Lilly Pilly trees in the back garden.
I managed to take a photo through the window. They are so bright and colourful.
I was working in some bright fabrics for a sample to demonstrate machine appliqué techniques. I always enjoy using different stitches on my machine. We often do not take the time to "play" with stitch settings and sizes, so this little project will be a fun chance to experiment with your machine.
I will be teaching a class on machine applique at Pioneer Patchwork on Saturday, 21 June. I will cover all sorts of machine applique techniques including buttonhole stitching, zig zag stitching, invisible blind hem stitching, fused raw edge appliqué and turned seam allowance machine applique.
