I finished the quilting on the Cartoon Teddy quilt for the Quilt Alliance contest. This is how I imagine Teddy would look if he were to be a cartoon character.
Here it is before binding
I used a very thick poly batting to give him some definition, it shows better on the back.
I used the same fabric for the binding as I did for his bandanna
And gray for the backing
Here is the post about how I drew it out and got started with the embroidery http://timquilts.com/2015/02/13/animals-we-love/
and here is the post about the quilting http://timquilts.com/2015/02/14/quilting-teddy/
I am going to have to make another so I have one to keep because all entries become a donation to the Quilt Alliance, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and after a national exhibition tour, will be auctioned to benefit the mission of the organization.
I did draw out another on a different fabric and I think I will finish that one to keep.
Teddy almost always has a bandanna on, here he is yesterday.
Last night it came untied and I didn’t notice it was missing until I looked at the pictures.
Here he is proudly posing with the finished quilt.
He has his ears down in the picture, but often his ears are up, like in the quilt, when he is listening or thinking.
I still need to add a hanging sleeve and label but that will wait until tomorrow .
Now back to work on some of the quilts in the big pile 🙂
