Time to start sewing the applique down on the Crow Quilt. It is a labor of love to whip the pieces to the background. Even though I pre-folded the edges down there is quite a bit of finishing to be done. Mainly it is how do I want the tree limbs to finish. Should they end where at the background edge or do I let them trail into the borders. I decided that visually it looked good to have some extend over.
Thread decisions – pulled the right colors out of the stash
