Stuff With Scraps #2



After recently finishing a massive quilt project, I decided that a small and fun quickie project was the order of the day. (And I was tired of my old needlebook.)

I'm still digging J. R. Laury's running stitch method for applique. The green stem is made with a teensy strip of bias-cut cotton that has been put through my favourite sewing toy ever... the Clover Bias Tape Maker. I have it in 1/4" (used here) and 1/2" widths. Makes me want to stitch a quilt with loads of vines and stems... Hmmm...
