The Q was chosen!
Then it was mocked up:
And then it was hand drawn by yours truly, mounted onto stabilizer, cut out, and then machine appliqued to the quilt top.
For size reference, my friend Emily is holding that up and she is 6 ft. tall. I mean, it’s over her head but it’s a really nice sized quilt. Since then, I’ve been hand embroidering the whole thing with a satin stitch. It is relatively slow going but it’s getting there!
I really love the non-perfect nature of this. It will truly be a one of a kind handmade keepsake for Little Quinten. With any luck, I’ll finish the embroidery up this week and be able to assemble the quilt over the weekend!
