Almost Finished, 5

Taken from a side angle, one sees that the needle turn appliqué became rather puffy after I added the back fabric.

I decided to machine quilt the black appliqué, which had been in the back of my mind anyway. I tried it with Sulky Invisible, however, the stitching had too much shine for this small piece. So I tested out black thread, thinking I would just go along the edges to keep it "in the ditch" and rather discreet.
Discreet? Me? Ha! 
As I stitched I realized that I really did like the possibilities of the stitched black line--I had fun!

You are right--that black quilting thread really makes it! Looks great Julierose
