I've got a helper now.
I tried outside first, but it was a bit windy.
I machine appliqued using fusible and a small zig zag stitch.
When using muslin background I usually use a variety to lend to the vintage look. Plus it is easier for me to purchase that way!
This isn't the corner, but as you can see I wasn't shooting for perfection.
I'm really happy with my decision to do blue and red.
I started with this color blue, ran out....
switched to this blue, ran out........
And ended with this one!
