I've always wanted to go to Egypt to see the incredible pyramids and soak in the massiveness of them. I don't know why I don't like hot weather (that's why I live in Washington). I'll settle for using photos of when my husband went. This applique quilt will bring Egypt alive for both of us. I hope it brings it alive for you too!
Applique size: 22" W x 17" H
Cut your background fabric to approx. 23”x 18” first. This is the fabric you will put all of the other pieces on top of. Then cut and place the pyramids and sand pieces on top of the background.
Once your applique pieces are fused to the background, stitch with a straight stitch around each piece with matching thread.
Trim to square.
Add batting and backing and quilt as desired.
