Another UFO Sighting

I can't remember the name of the pattern off the top of my head, but it's another UFO.  When I pulled it out of the bag I remembered why it was one.  I didn't know how to machine applique around the really small parts without any shredding.  Do I just do a satin stitch?  Keep the stitch I'm using?  Just do a straight stitch/FMQ inside them?  Nothing?  They really need something.  Plus I didn't have the thread colors I wanted at the time.  Hence shoving it into a bag until just now.  Looking back, I probably should have done the machine applique as quilting.  Duh.

Here are some pictures:

Here's the picture of the entire quilt.  The camera doesn't do the colors justice.  It will look fabulous when it's done.  If it ever gets done.  LOL

Think I've blogged enough for today?

That is gorgoeus.

I use a very small, narrow zig zag wen I am appliquing smaller peices. Either that or hand stitch with a blanket or satin stitch.

Love and hugs Gina xxx

I hand stitch the small pieces. With all the twisting and turning in a small piece, I find it's just as quick to hand stitch (gives me something to do while watching TV).
