Moving right along....

I'm ready to start some stitching on the Three Little Pigs Quilt top.


Since I don't usually use a pattern, nor do I draw anything out before I start a scenic project like this, I thought that I would share the process as I do it. 

Many people ask how to make scenes like this and it really is not hard.  I usually take more time than necessary because it's all in my head and I make it up as I go along.  So many times I get stumped for a few days.

I had a really nice landscape scene fabric and, at first, I wasn't going to use it...was gonna make the quilt more 'cartoon' like.  But I found that I really liked the look of the bridge, water and flowers...but it wasn't long enough...so I added the fence, flowers and grass to the bottom.

I'm please with how it is turning out so far.  This weekend I will do the stitching around the appliques.

Have a great weekend !
