This is another Kim Diehl project. I joined up for her Simple What Nots program again. This is Season Two, Month One. Those little hexies are appliqued on. I am such a klutz when ironing the applique pieces around the freezer paper shapes, and good grief, what a mess I make with the glue when I am positioning the pieces on the background. Afterwards, I have burned finger tips and am sticky all over.
I used Kim's invisible machine applique and was fairly pleased with my effort. It was simple and went together in just a few hours. You can purchase last year's Simple What Nots kits on Fatquarter Shop (all on sale now), and join Season Two if you are interested.
Don't Kim's designs and fabrics express her style perfectly every time? She is so true to her own tastes when she creates. If you didn't know, you would look at that and think, "Hmmm, that looks like a Kim Diehl design".
I am finding this Simple What Nots program very enjoyable, and am so glad to have a chance to practice my machine applique. I have to say though, I always feel like a bit of a mad woman when I am clipping the background away from underneath the applique shape in order to tear out the freezer paper. I hate hacking away with sharp scissors on a just completed project. Plenty of ways to go wrong there.
This project is super tiny. It only measures 12.5 by 14.5 inches. I think it is the perfect size to put next to my tv table as a coaster for my wine glass and remote device or perhaps under a candle.
I think it is pretty cute, and I plan to quilt it and bind it this week and find a place for it!
