My new project hanging quilt
 
Okay this one should be interesting because it will be decorative only. The size of this quilt with be 18 by 14 and the smaller blocks are only 5 by 5 whole quilt is applique and the individual pieces are so small I have to wet my finger to pick them up. Hopefully it turns out well. Here is my first block. I'm not 100% happy with it so I might redo this block. I do like his hair and trench coat. He is not done, I was thinking of using grey thread in the wings to add interest. What do you think?

The little guy needs a halo... a bit crooked, to match his messy hairdo.

This is just adorable..Love it all, and, his expression, is priceless! I don't think it needs top stitching, but you are the expert..I especially love the threads on the tie..he is very rakish!

Donna February 13th, 2013 08:09 PM

He is just adorable, can't wait to see what else you come up with. Heck, you could start a business :-) I seen some ladies that make quilts using t-shirts, they too were something else, but takes a lot of time..

I love it!! I also can't wait to see the finished product.

I will be very useful in a Zombie Apocalypse. But in a Squirrel Zombie Apolcalypse I won't be any help. You kill a Zombie with a head shots and squirrels have teeny tiny heads, mine aim ain't that good. Beware the squirrels. I hope that don't get together with the pigeon. But a squirrel pigeon zombie apocalypse would be so bad.:shock:

I just commissioned the artist she will do 10 drawings for me $5 per drawing and she knows I'm using them for this quilt. That just makes me feel better about using someone else's art work. Oddly enough I can't draw at all. It seems like I should be able to cause I can do stuff like this, cut hair, color hair, sculpt a face in clay and wood crave. But I can't draw maybe I'm can only work in 3-d not on paper.

Trip the thread do good with the messy appearance of the angel. That was not on purpose the fabric frays terrible.

Donna one of the ladies in my quilting group did a t-shirt quilt. She said it was difficult because t-shirt material stetch so much. I'm not sure I'm to the level I would feel good charging someone for my quilts. I like em as gifts. People can't get mad at you for a handmade gift.:wink: Some of the ladies in my quilt group are so amazing. They learned from their moms. No one in my family sews. My mom can't thread her sewing machine.:D I went into a fabric store and they were doing a free quilting demo it looked neat so I tried it. There is a charity in my area that donates quilts to quilts to abused children and children with life-threatening illnesses. I would like to make a quilt of this group.
