Just the Two of Us - the pelicans are finished!

There they are! The pelicans are finished!  I am thrilled with how this project turned out. So many ups, downs, and even sideways to get to the end, but finally, we made it. Thank you so much for following along their journey with me - you are all amazing, helpful, supportive, you know - the best!

Here's what happened since the last post:

I decided on the freehand painted background -

Lots of invisible applique:




More invisible applique - placing the pelicans onto the background:

Loading of the beautiful ice-dyed backing (this one was dyed by Helia Ricci):

And then the quilting:






And then the blocking and drying:

The first facing.

Believe it or not, this was my first time facing a quilt.  On my first attempt, I cut my pieces, folded in half and pressed and then attached to the four sides of the quilt.  Well, I was so unhappy with the miters this happened:

After talking with my friend I decided to do a full facing (waste a lot of fabric).  And since I really wanted some wow, I decided to curve the edges.

Just a little bit more and it will be finished!

So that's it... it went by a lot faster in pictures!

  1. I have been watching this take shape, Karen, and really love the finished piece. Your quilting added depth and texture, and too me back to Florida! Beautiful job!

  3. I do not think any of you. Keep deceive people and God will soon punish each and every one of you. That was the way they have deceived me and took my hard earned money. If it was not for my friend who later went to a genuine loan organization, which would have been long dead time. Please, friends, any of you who visit the wrong place looking for a genuine place to get a loan should get out of there and contact me via email (analizabeth101@gmail.com) and I will direct you to a legitimate place where I got my loan and you can get a loan from them too. you can contact them here chillwellfinancialhome@gmail.com for a legitimate and a reliable loan...or like i said you can contact me through my personal email so i can tell you how i processed my own loan from them.
    believe me i am doing this to save you guys from does heartless deceivers out there i also fell for the until now,, please turn away from them contact mr,chill, via email,,chillwellfinancialhome@gmail he is legit and reliable........
