Did I mention that this is Alisa's first applique project? Oh, how I would love to take credit for this as being a great teacher but.... actually, Alisa is a great artist. Yes, I taught her to needle turn cotton applique and a whip stitch for wool; a bit about embellishment threads, and then she went for it.
The dark background is stunning in a mix of indigo prints pieced together with a dragonfly print on an indigo background for the border. Alisa is working on the embellishment, making this even more stunning. She has set the bar really high for me.
I have always believed that you don't need to start on a small project when learning new techniques. Learn on a design you love, regardless of size and then you will stick with it.
