I-11 Coyote Chase - Variation 1
Well I tried reverse appliqué with this one but those sharp points were too skinny and barely any fabric was left to turn under. I thought with regular appliqué the seams on the cream would show through. Soooo I decided that the best way to go would be hand piecing. Not something I've done a lot of. The entire thing is therefore hand pieced with all those set in seams, including the middle.
For some unexplicable reason I forgot to add a little extra seam allowance to one of the outer pieces so it is in fact a smidgen short so a little fudging will be require when putting the sashing on. But the corners are all square so it just dips a smidge at one of the middle seam allowances. Its a tad crumpled but that I'm sure will smooth out in time and certainly once in the quilt. It is also a tad wonky but I'm happy with it. I ain't doing it again!!! for certain!!
