I'm making progress on a stocking...
I've started a Nancy Halvorsen design...
lots of fusible web appliqué.
Why do I get suckered into her designs? I absolutely hate quilting on fusible web!
This time around I trimmed every bit of fusible web to less than a 1/4" outline. I feel like I'm "wasting" a lot of fusible web but I already can see the final quilt will be much less stiff than previous quilts I've made. (I have made several of Nancy's projects over the years...completely adorable but I detest the stiffness of some of the quilts.)
After getting everything cut out and partially fused I decided to redo all the numbers to a dark gold. I bought this book and fabric so long ago that I can't remember my original intention for color placement...but it seemed obvious to me a change was needed.
Much better with the dark gold numbers! Everything is fused...now to tackle the topstitching.
