Paper Applique for Paper Quilts

I was sitting on my couch, stitching away, and decided to post my little piece in progress.  As I’ve described before, I add pieces here and there to my paper quilts with stitched paper appliques (This method has all kinds of possibilities that I explore in Workshop 3). I simply use medium to attach a printed piece of tissue to a paper towel, let that dry, then hand stitch. When I’m all done, I trim the edge and glue it onto my larger work with more medium. Simple and effective. Actually, it works on fabric quilts as well.
