I am trying to streamline the process of my "Lily" class; so I sent the background fabric through the printer and printed a grid onto the fabric. ... (I think I've found another way I'll like better yet. Pounce with a grid!)
Anyway, here's "Bumbo!" I used a light creamy thread to free motion embroidery highlights in and around the elephant.
Next I layered the backing, batting, and the top. Oh, the fun of straight line quilting.
Then I decided to do some more stitching, highlighting in and around the elephant again.
The back is complete with a label and a hanger.
6.5" X 10.0"
Cotton patches fused to a cotton background.
Heavily quilted with Superior's Thread.
It was so pretty on Saturday. The boys pulled out the "Leagle Eagle" ultralights and flew over to the neighbors fly-in for lunch.
Paul took me for a Saturday evening drive and stopped along the way for me to take pictures.
This cattle corral is just up the road from our place right next to the iris field. I need to go back soon to capture more of the iris' in bloom.
Of special interest to Paul was the corn emerging through the ground.
We stopped along Joel's fish pond before heading home.
