- Sewing and cooking are two of my favorite things. In the past, I often found myself searching for pictures and details of projects I have done, without success. So I decided to start documenting my creations. Then my son suggested I add my recipes to the blog so that they are documented also.

Yesterday I made this simple appliqued wall hanging that will be used for a class. I had batiks that were given to me from 2 dear friends and I used them all in this whimsical project. I hung it in the dining room and fell in love with it!
I usually use Wonder Under for my fusing material for the applique parts but I tried Pellon Steam a Seam II so that we could use it in class. It offers more ease in placing the parts on the background but I did find it to be a little fiddly to work with. However you do not need to use a Teflon sheet for placement which is an advantage in class.
It is hard to tell from this pic but I used the blanket stitch for the leaves and stems and the satin stitch for the flower petals; this will allow students to practice both. I honestly want to stipple quilt the background fabric but never got to it yet.
