Ben and His Aliens!!

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!!

This is great. I don't know the characters, but I know he'll love them. And that he's watching Mom put it together just for him is priceless.

That is amazing and incredible!! Such a wonderful quilt. I have no idea who Ben is but I bet Cohen will be the envy of all his friends. You are certainly a true artist to be able to make those cartoon characters come to life in fabric like that!!

Catherine said...

Congratulations. If you could get permission to commercialise the pattern, you would have a LOT of happy kids in the world
