Text on Textile and Appliqué

Appliqué is a sewing technique that applies one smaller layer or piece of cloth on top of another with the edges tucked neatly under and held with neat invisible stitches. There is beauty and skill in this tradition. However, I want my stitches to be visible. I like how the thread colour, even in such small quantities, influences the over all effect. I like using chunky thread, how the stitching on the small  letters merges with the letter itself , see the ‘H’ and ‘E’ above, or becomes a border, and edging of contrast on the larger fonts.
