In case you are new to the world of large applique designs, let me fill you in. A large applique design is one which needs 2 or more hoopings, with the joining completed as you stitch, in the hoop. The beauty of my large applique designs is you can quickly create a 3D Animal Design much larger than your hoop, and then add them to quilt blocks, reading pillows or pretty much any item as you like.
This stunning Butterfly is made in 3 hoopings - it can be created as a stand-alone butterfly which can be appliqued to premade items, or, as with the Butterfly Bag, attached to an item on the final hooping.
