Snail and the rest
The rest is: sheep, a hen, a mouse, birds and a mini terrier. All on the same quilt and on a free scale.
I wanted to make a quilt with a machine appliquee. I was inspired by the log cabin animals from a French Quilt Coutry magazine and one of the fabrics with sheep and chickens. The effect: a lot of farm animals with one little terrier.
before and after quilting
The quilt is 36 inch x 45 inch, machine quilted with a cotton batting.
To make log cabin blocks, which were a starting point of that project, I used a canvas with a printed log cabin diagram (but an interlining with printed on grid or a thin paper sheet with a drawn pattern could be used as well):
|cut a strip according to the grid|
|stich on the back side|
|stiched and folded strip|
|stiched and unfolded strip|
