Day 21 

Today I worked on laying out and stitching down my appliqué block. I first folded and and ironed the background block so that I could center my design. 


I then pinned the the pieces onto the background where they were meant to go.


I then used a large zig zag (satin) stitch around the edges to keep the pieces down. 

Running test stitches

In the afternoon I worked on stenciling my design onto a piece of white fabric. This project has several more layers to paint.
