Fun with Appliqué


I did a little hand applique this past weekend and finished my Cheryl Wall quilt. I must say I didn't enjoy the pointy stars, I just struggled with getting those points. It's done and I'm happy with how it turned out.
The remainder of the weekend was spending time here. We did a long walk on the beach at low tide and were surprised on the way back how fast the tide comes in. It was a very relaxing weekend filled with sun, sand a little stitching.

Happy Quilting!

Your quilt looks wonderful! And I'd give about anything for a walk on the beach! It looks like a lovely place to visit! :0)

Love this quilt, Wendy. Getting the points on those stars can be a problem, but yours look great. The black background sure makes everything pop. My son and his family are coming over from Vancouver and a day at the beach is on the to-do list.

That beach walk really appeals to someone in the land locked midwest... how relaxing! LOVE your quilt! Is the background black or a dark blue? Either way, it makes the blocks and applique just pop!

I don't like doing the star points either, but I think I improve a little very time I do one. Sounds like a lovely weekend.

Beautiful... and beautiful! Don't you love that our neck of the woods has both beaches AND Cheryl Wall in person?

Lovely quilt! I'm with you on stars, no matter how many I do, it's just not my favourite part! Sounds like you had a lovely time. I miss the ocean. It's been a long time for me! Thanks for sharing!
