A day late...but finished!

First off, I want to thank the one that submitted the needle point applique technique and also the positive/negative rule. I really enjoyed both of these methods. I joined this mystery project so I could learn new quilting methods so this is stretching me. Having said that, I really had to think hard to get my creative brain working. I sympathize with anyone still trying to come up with a plan.

I was going to make a sled, but I'm not quite confident with making my own paper piecing patterns just yet. I found these cute mittens and got excited about them. They are not side by side, but they are the positive/negative idea.

I used the top freezer paper method for applique for the mittens. I was surprised and pleased with how easily it is to follow the shape to exactness.

I am amazed at your needle-turn since I know you have done very little or none of it before. You are a natural!!

LOVE LOVE LOVE the mittens too! The positive/negative works so perfect for them.

Glad you enjoyed this rule.

I love your mittens! What a great application of the -/+ rule. And framing my all time favorite block, a Sister's Choice (by any other name, it's still the same!). Great going!
