I started this at last week's MMQG Sew In by getting the background Konas sewed up and quilted. I used matching thread and wavy lines - it is a flag after all, my MMQG quilty consult friends pointed out.
Then I fused the wee bugger to the flag and top stitch appliqued all of his tiny pointy bits. I gave the Janome a proper Pivoting workout!
That lion is impressive, if I do say so myself, even from the back! Speaking of the back. Nothing too exciting on the back. I really should jazz those up sometime...
In other news I worked on a second order today as well. Some Quilt As You Go Christmas stockings. I have been documenting my process all day, so look for a tutorial on these lovelies soon!
Oh and this week I learned to knit! Tell you more about that later too!
Now, back to the trick or treaters. And what I mean by that is "back to eating all of the small chocolate bars left over after we had two kids come to the door".
Great flag, that lion must have been....time consuming. It looks awesome though.ReplyDelete
Shew, I bet that lion was a pain in the butt to cut out and stitch! But so worth it in the end, great job! :) Looking forward to the QAYG stocking post, they look cute!ReplyDelete
Wow! I'm sew impressed! It was pretty fiddle stitching around that lion, but I know sweet Janome was up to the task!ReplyDelete
Awesome job on the cushion! Your lion is very, very impressive. Love that you are knitting too.ReplyDelete
Squeee! That's one impressive lion, woman! I can hear you ROAR!ReplyDelete
You earned those damn lil chocolate bars....
Quite the Sew day you had, 5 finishes is amazing!
Impressive is right. He is gorgeous. Lots of work but the end result is amazing. The stockings are very nice and I look forward to the tutorial.ReplyDelete
