This is the other project currently in progress. A big applique Polar Bear. I finished up the stitching last week. The idea was to make him look kind of like a crazy quilt with the fancy stitches tacking down any loose edges.
I did the stitching with the applique and 1 layer of batting as stabilizer. I will add one or 2 more layers of batting to give it a trapunto-type look. That gives it more life, and will make him look 3D.
After that, I can cut him out and apply him to the final background scene ... Stay tuned!
I bought the kit and pattern a few years ago at a Quilt Shop in Appleton, WI.
