I spent several months without buying a patchwork magazine. I don't know exactly why, I bought the May-June Quiltmania issue. In fact I know why, I saw a quilt with Kokeshi (Japanese dolls), and I just wanted to make it.
The pattern is by Susan Claire. You can see a picture of it here.
Before starting it, and since I dont want to use fused applique, I wanted to practise my needle applique skills.
I also had in mind a bag pattern by Ellen Medlock. You can see a picture here.
I ended with this:
The bag pattern is brillant. Explained in details, easy to do. I do recommend it!
I had fun dong the applique too, and the practise was needed!
I wish you all a nice weekend!
