So, here we go - more pics of my first DWR as it nears the end of the process:
This is the pre-trimmed top
The "pansy" pantograph. I bought this and several other flower pantos from Urban Elementz several years ago.
Used one of my curved template tools to do the "leaf" shape on the little green squares.
And free motion leaves in the little melon shapes.
Tonight while I'm watching S.U. basketball I'll work on trimming the batting and backing to match the front scallop shape. Tomorrow - deciding which fabric I'll use to bind it, and getting that cut, ironed, and sewn to the front. I almost always stitch it to the back by hand. I just like that process and how it looks. Every now and then I do attach the binding strictly by machine...but not on this one!
In peace and piecing,
