Let The Quilting Begin

Today I finally found my nerve and put together the first two quilt blocks for a project called Woodland Creatures.  You purchase the kits with laser cut pieces.  So really all you have to do is trim, peel and stick.  Reminds me of paper dolls from days gone by.  LOL.  The trick was to not have too hot an iron.  Today I did a bit of a test and then I jumped in and did this. 

The next process involves stitching the edges of each piece with the machine or my hand.  The squirrel picture has a dragon fly in the upper right corner but no wings were in the kit.  I called today and they are suggesting organza fabric and that won't do well with laser cutting.  I will have to dig in the stash and see what I find.  I am thinking that some hand stitching with specialty stitches might be called for.  It is  start.  Two down and many more to go.
