lastly... I love this little acorn!
Some know I like to use this blog for teaching opportunities. If you loved these wool applique... they are part of the Jacobean Wool Patterns purchased from ThreeSheepStudio.com.
Quilting wool? I knew the stitches would sink into the background wool... and thus I changed /lengthened stitch length to only 8 stitches per inch. I think that worked well for me. Many of these gorgeous patterns include beads and embroidery at or outside the edges of the applique. As a quilter... just deal with it.... you may not be able to get as close to the applique as you'd like for an outline stitch, but so what!!! My take on this kind of work... the applique speaks for itself... Don't try to compete with too much quilting!
