I wanted to add photograph type quality to my quilting and applique helps me do that.
Applique can change with my mood. Who cares if the “pillow” I'm making isn't a standard size. If I want to see the Eiffel tower when I go to bed, or sitting in my favorite chair? I don't limit myself, I make it!
With applique, I can make a series of different pictures. That way I can see something new for every mood that I’m in. Maybe, I need 99 different throw pillows on the bed. I create because it makes me happy. I do what I love and love what I do.
Creativity is messy and random, there is no right way to do it.
Start applique with a pattern you love.
