My first needle turn applique.

I have always wanted to try to hand appliqué. Just recently a group from our quilt guild formed a appliqué club. Our first project was needle turn, something I thought I would never try. However, I think I may like it. We were given a piece of green bias to use for the stem and a piece of pre-marked purple, it looks blue in the picture, for our flower. After I got it appliquéd to the background piece I wanted to do something with it since it was after all my first needle turn project. I added a few leaves and a piece of brown for dirt. I bordered it and made it into a pocket for a canvas bag I had. BTW I also tried my hand at my first quilting. My stitches are not even like they are supposed to be. We will be introduced to several other hand appliqué methods in our next meeting


I wanted to practice the needle turn applique a little more and made this mini-runner.

  3. Great job with the applique. The pocket looks fab. Love the little table runner too.

  4. Your projects look great. I think you are on to a new needlework craft. Enjoy!

  5. Your first attempt at needleturn looks great - well done on giving it a try and completing some projects with it!!
