A year of scraps: Appliqué

Continuing with our guild’s scrap theme from my two previous posts – in August the theme was appliquéing with scraps. I showed two ways of using small scraps, one for scraps with fusible web on the back, and one without. We had a new challenge coming up for the Christmas meeting, “Make a Christmas pillow from scraps”, so I used simple Christmas trees as a shape.
These trees are quilted and made into pillows; a tutorial on how to make them is coming up.

In October I demonstrated Ticker Tape. I had never done this technique before so this pillow was my first attempt.

Orange is the perfect neutral I’d say.

I also played with the simple Christmas tree shape, making a Ticker Tape Tree.
The panel is quilted and ready to make into a pillow. A tutorial on how to make such a tree is also coming up.

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Great scrap ideas! I agree with your orange as a neutral.

  3. Orange ticker tape tree. Orange, did I say orange. LOVE. xox
