After completing the Basket of Hope project from my previous post, I wanted to continue in my journey of machine applique. The wall hanging pattern I used is called Rose Medallion from the book Vintage Blooms by Pat Sloan. I also used her line of fabric called Old Blooms. I'm usually not one to go "by the book" when creating from a pattern, but I sure did on this one. This time with the machine applique I used matching thread to the fabric rather than all one color thread and I'm much happier with the results.
