Finish It Up Friday ~ Jack and Friends

I finished the quilt for E3! This was quite the creative challenge for me, but I think it turned out alright.

I quilted the glued appliqué shapes down and then couched yarn over top on the long arm. Not the straightest lines in the world, but it will do.

When I loaded this up, I quilted the background sky and around each cactus to secure it. Next I quilted the black area at the bottom and finished up with the couching.

I fused a moon shape and couched over top.

I even remembered my tag!

It’s far from perfect, but fun to do something totally different.

Have a great day!

    I you take a good look at nature you will find tha trees do not grow straight, that there are odd bumps and shapes there as well. You did GREAT!

  5. That ended up so beautiful! The yarn couching really makes it. And the crooked lines are actually perfect. I mean when was the last time you saw straight lines on a real cactus?

    oops, meant to say, the lines aren’t perfectly straight because in nature they wouldn’t be either.

  14. Rose says:

    Fabulous. The couching makes the cacti stand out. I love that the lines are perfectly straight because in nature, that’s the norm.
