The applique for Cohens quilt is finally complete. Ben and 10 of his Alien persona's:
Im happy this part of the quilt is over. There has been a lot of fiddling, a bit of ad-libbing and a touch of tweaking to make them look as close to the originals as I can, using fabric!
Cohen has been extremley helpful with colours and details that need to be there and he is being extremley patient!! He doesnt even mind that Ben looks like he has chickenpox lol (should have gone and brought some plain skintone fabric!!!).
So now all there is left is to set them. I have a plan which I think will work (loosely translated....Im winging each step of this quilt and hoping it will work!!)
Its difficult to find "boy" fabric to match but I opened a Jelly Rolly of Miss Jumps Scrapbag and the majority of the fabrics work. All i have to do is match some sashings and borders. Better get back to it, the " 6 yr old boss" is watching!!
