On to the quilting

This morning I finished off the machine applique, found some fabric for backing, and sandwiched it all up.  I used a double layer of batting so the applique will pop out from the background.


The afternoon was spent ditch stitching around all the various elements, there is quite a bit of puff in the background now so the quilting will have to be done carefully to prevent any folds occurring.  No prizes for guessing what I will be doing this weekend.
