This one above is a punch needle pattern I drew, with the finished work being just a little over 4.5" x 6", in Valdani Perle Cotton. I like punch needle because it's satisfying to see the pattern finally begin to pack in and look like something besides a hairy mess--which is all it looks like 'til half done at least! But once finished, it's inviting to the touch and the colors seem deeper than in wool applique, especially if I've used variegated threads.
But I do love the wool applique! The quilt is soft with the mix of textures, and lots of stitching detail, and I love hand quilting! These below are Spring and Summer of my wall quilt series--I'm working on Autumn in the evenings now. But these are ready and in the shop. I am enjoying having them on my wall just as much as I'd always suspected I would.
Hope your week is going well!
