I then, put it together in a quilt sandwhich with some batting and pink backing, basted it with pins, and traced the design with my machine.
Here it is after I ironed the frixion pen out.
I decided to use micro-stippling for the background filler. I liked it so much on the Heart and Feather Whole Cloth and for some reason it just seemed to fit with this design. To be honest I think stippling can go with anything, but onto more pictures...
I started from the top of the trunk and made it almost around both feet before my arms felt like they were going to fall off.
Saddly, I didn't have another chance to work on this again before I saw my grandmother, but I showed her some pictures so, she knows it's coming.
I feel like I tend to underestimate how much time it takes to complete projects like this and sometimes just have to say...I have a gift for you, but it's not finished yet! Probably common for people who make a lot of homemade gifts. Anyone else catch themselves saying this?
Anyways, she was really excited that I was making this for her and said she has no problem waiting for it.
Can't wait to finish it up!
