This piece started as a project to try various hand-appliqué techniques from Laurene Sinema's “Appliqué, Appliqué, Appliqué”. A wide selection of taupes, combined with some challenging piecing, created an Asian flair. 3-D appliqué dogwoods were added to an original setting. Random, overall hand-quilted Japanese motifs finish the piece. Hand appliqué, hand embroidered and hand stitched, machine pieced, hand quilted.
