Today we are sharing our fourth and final applique in our Stroll on the Beach Collection, a beautiful conch shell applique! Although I love all the appliques in this collection, I think this one has become my favorite. I love the colors and the details, both in individual felt pieces and the stitching. Hope you have as much fun stitching it up as I did!
The Conch Shell Applique was made to fit on a 6″ x 6″ block but can be enlarged or reduced to meet your needs. Enjoy!
