Wall hanging  finished size: 65 cm x 89 cm
This beautiful fairy quilt wall hanging was stitched with the needleturn applique technique, but it would also look great using other forms of applique.

This full size applique pattern includes full instructions for the needleturn applique with optional embroidery embellishments.  For an extra touch, small glass seed beads and sequins were added as an embellishment to the flowers and sections of the fairy's wings.  Placement is indicated on the pattern.  Once again the optional addition of a stippling effect on the quilting, helps to flatten the background and make the fairy and flowers appear to jump out of the picture.

"FAIRY DREAMS" PATTERN  IS $19.95 AUD
and includes postage within  Australia. 

We pride ourselves on providing colourful original designs, that are fun to do. This needleturn applique pattern uses a hand sewing technique, the pieces are not fused to the background, they are sewn on by hand, using a small hemming stitch. (Although, you can of course make it up in your method of choice, the instructions supplied are for that of the needleturn technique).   Using basic patchwork for the background and borders, the wall hanging is then appliqued. We like to add optional embroidery using bead embellishments on our quilt patterns to add an extra creative touch. Our patterns are ideal for textile art backgrounds, as the optional embroidery, can be as much or as little as you like. Finally the finished wall hanging is quilted,  often using a random stippled quilting. For beginners we have a how to applique section in our website.
