Alisa's Enchantment

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.

If you love this design, get the pattern from Material Obsession and join us.


  1. Wow, that is one gorgeous piece of work.

  2. She has picked some lovely fabrics. I love the tree trunk fabric.

  3. Wow! She knows how to jump in with both feet.
