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 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 !

3 Little Pigs...some shots along the way !

I've been working on the Three Little Pigs's what I've done so far...

I started the background from the sky.  Here the tree tops have fusible and it's ready to iron down.

 Here's some pictures of the machine embroidered paper doll pigs and wolf.

I'm trying out some grass/flower fabrics for the bottom and have a paper 'road' in place.
The pictures are a little out of order...couldn't help it...Blogger has it's own ideas !
  I hope I can keep working on this at the same pace I have since yesterday !!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

November/December Goals for Charming Girls

I'm just pulling some fabrics for my next storybook quilt...3 Little Pigs

1.  The 3 Little Pigs quilt is one of my goals for CG. 

2.  Finish the Simple Thymes BOMs.

3. Prepare fleece to make blankets for Ronald McDonald House.  My daughter Tina will be here for Christmas and she wants to make more of the fleece blankets.  I have soooo much fleece I can to put together for some quilts...we already have 3 made from her last visit in June.

4.  I will finish the Ladybug quilt and get it quilted...I hope!

Sorry I don't have any more pictures...will get some of the Pigs quilt as it progresses.

Thanks for stopping by!
