I finished and posted this cute squirrel on a snowboard pattern and tutorial for sale on craftsy.
Go here if you're interested in a PDF download - $5.00
I know you want to make one :-)
It also includes an owl - has detailed tutorial with 20 plus photos so a beginner can easily do this. You will need to free motion quilt so would have to know how to do that but also good for a beginner FMQ.
With that done - on to my Lake George landscape
Rough sketch on paper
After tracing onto freezer paper reversed and folding under top edges and layering background. I decided to use the method I did with the Sochi squirrel and quilt the background first.
I wasn't paying attention - bummer, grab the ripper
Now adding the dock and fusible boat tying poles.
I know I want a girl and her dog, but not sure if I want to stop there or add trees or something in the foreground like rocks or bushes or ?
What would you do next?
