Christmas mini quilt 2011
When it came time to sit down and actually start piecing the quilt together, the design took on a completely different look. As you can see, my drawing abilities are pretty sketchy. The purpose of my drawings is to get the idea out of my head before I forget it. I don't solidify it until I actually start creating it on fabric.
There are still some details to be added to the characters, but that will happen when I start sewing the appliques to the fabric. I am planning on developing a pattern for this mini quilt asap. It is intended to hang on the wall and will have some sort of fabric straps to hang it from. But it is still in the works. I still have to stitch on the appliques, add the batting and backing, quilt it and bind it, so there is quite a bit of work still to do.
