I'm still fascinated with the folded star ornament and wanted to try something. I printed out photos of my dogs and my great niece (wow, great niece makes me sound old). Then, I just stated folding and adding the triangles to the photos in a star patterns. I tried two different star patterns on the one ornament
It was tough because you didn't have that starting point in the middle. I definitely want to make the photos smaller next time and try again. However, I thought you might like to see my experiment.
Fall Quilt - Cut Outs Completed
Why do applique's have to be so intricate :-) I can see I'm going to have fun sewing down the leaves of this Amish Pumpkin fall wall hanging. There are so many twists and turns. If anyone has a good suggestion on how to quickly sew down this type of applique, please let me know.
I also completed the pumpkin template cut out and the background piece is set. For the background, I chose a black blender fabric. I think it will contrast nicely with all the fall colors. I also chose the background fabric. It's a brown orange tie die like batik.
