My grandson's birthday quilt has gone from this...
...to this! Cute huh! This was the perfect sewing today after last week's long work days. I had originally envisioned the dinosaurs with more details, but then settled on the "silhouettes" as I know this quilt is going to be well loved and washed often once our three year old grand guy sees it.
To create the dinosaurs, I simple used my light-box to trace the dinosaurs from
the Jurassic Jamboree fabric (by Moda) that I used for the four patches.
I then enlarged the drawings to fit into the 9" blocks.
I created the applique dinosaurs and...
...used a large zig-zag stitch to sew each dinosaur on.
I bought some soft, cuddly red minky fabric for the backing and will next look forward to sharing part 3: the quilting, with ya next weekend. In the meantime, my hexi's are keeping me busy and my daily walks continue to be enjoyable now that Fall has arrived in our little part of the world.
Hope all is well for each of you and thanks for stopping by!
