Yep Julia, I'm doing a sort of paint by numbers with turned under edges using this book
as my guide... then I'm going to mount this BIG applique onto a simple pieced background to replicate the background on the photo and cut away the excess underneath.
I'm going to make this my place to natter about my progress (Ali, you're welcome to too if you wish
) rather than my blog as I will do the big reveal over there and maybe do a summary post once I get it done.
So cos it's peeing it down I can't be bothered to go Fencing tonight (naughty me- I've already paid up front). Yesterday I printed it out lifesize- well larger than actual dog size!- on 20 sheets of A3 stuck them to my only available wall with the real photo above for colour matching purposes and then stuck freezer paper over the top and made a template of my quilt map...
And just now I have decided to work on Fletcher's nose!
Well sort of- I'm going to have a KFC and a bath first. Priorities and all that.
