It all started when I bought this book
I was keen to try out Rose Hughes method of freezer paper applique. I've tried several methods of this sort and thought hers looked fun.
Her method differs only in the way you sew the pieces together. It starts the same as other methods
I decided to use one of the patterns in Rose's book as I thought she had already done all the hard work of sorting out which piece to sew first and in which order to put them together. I always think this is the hard part so well done Rose. I really enjoyed the process at first as the pieces were quite large. Then we got onto the smaller more complex pieces and I had to redo several as my trimming back got a bit enthusiastic and I sniped threads more times than I like. But I've now got my pussy all tucked up tight and ready to make into a sandwich and quilt. Not sure yet whether I'll leave it as it is or put borders round it and make it larger.
