So, Hubby's Oma is celebrating her 80th birthday later this year. This is the same lady I made the Dutch Pinwheel Cushion Cover for last year. Based on how much she loved it and also the fact that she doesn't "need" anything as such, I had been thinking for a while that I will make her a lap quilt for her big birthday.
So after a bit of homework, I've drawn up this very rough plan. 4 appliquéd Sunbonnet Sue's and one Fisherman Sam/Overall Bill to represent our section of her family.
This is where I start to get a bit weary of this idea. I've never appliquéd anything before - it feels like this is a big deal considering the magnitude of the occasion...
So, my dear sweet readers, can any of you help with tips or pointers on appliquéing? I've googled and googled and there are hundreds of ideas and suggestions but I really don't know where to start or what will give me the best results given my skill level in this area.
Any ideas or tips or pointers will be hugely appreciated!
