I attended the Original Sewing & Quilt Expo and came across Sew Wonderful Dreams‘ booth. I was drawn to the Bethlehem Batiks wall hanging they were featuring and bought the pattern. I had never done applique before or worked with batiks, but I was willing to learn!
I had so much fun picking out the batiks and doing the applique! The pattern came with great instructions and an easy-to-use template for fabric placement. Batiks not only gave this piece the perfect dark and bright colors to create the night scene, but because batiks don’t fray they were probably the best type of fabric to use for my first applique project.
I quilted it on my home machine with free-motion, trying to add interesting details to enhance the design.
