Chenille Applique'

Chenille Applique
I remember sleeping under a chenille bedspread at my Grandma's house.  Soft, fuzzy caterpillar-like channels were stitched into a design on the blanket.  And interestingly enough, "chenille" is actually the French word for "caterpillar." 

Chenille Applique

Here's how to make bias chenille strips, then use them to appliqué a design and  finish the edges (it's one of those "Alternate Endings") for this sweet little pillow.  You'll be amazed at how EASY it is from start to finish!  Just takes a few supplies, and a little (ok, maybe a lot) of elbow grease!

Remember, Owl Always Love You

More of Aunt Marjory's quilts:

You may recall that my cute little Aunt is on a quest to make quilts for her granddaughters.  I've become her quilt-coach (enabler, lol!).  First it was a couple of owl quilts, then bears, and now elephants!
