Freehand Machine Applique and Quilting

Today I attended an Adult Education class for Freehand Machine Applique and Quilting. I have tried many times to quilt freehand and am just terrible at it!! After this lesson - still not that great at quilting, but, didnt mind the applique bit, making landscapes and have left there inspired to do more!! There was 10 ladies in the group and we all made something different, from our own ideas. One lady made this BEAUTIFUL sky and sea at sunset wallhanging, it had bits of purple, red, orange with different shades of blue in it...... just lovely!! The tree tops in mine actually has scraps of thread bunched up in a ball and sewn in squiggels over the top in various colours - quite effective I thought!!
I am still doing the binding on Everyday Angels - not much more to do, I should have a pic in a couple of days...........
Hugs, Sarah
