This looks really great and I want to try this for a block on a tote I am making...

Can you tell me if you sewed around the edges of applique in the picture? 

What I did for the applique was to put double-sided fusible on them, and then sew them down.  I didn't do a satin stitch - just a straight stitch right inside the edges of the pieces.  I am hoping that they stay well and don't fray too much when washed . . .

Thanks so much for your reply!  I would be interested to know if they fray as well.  I have only sewed a close zigzag but I can see how that would be difficult on something like this...I really like how this turned out and how you used the picture to cut out your shapes.  I am doing a mountain scene, a friend's view from her house and had her son send me a picture of it.  I'll post mine when I'm done.  Thanks for the inspiration!
