WIP Wednesday: Really Big George (and a lovely fabric stack)

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Since it’s Wednesday, I decided to show you one of my new WIPs, based on Giant George…

It’s now all glued together and I need to sew it next and then quilt it! It’s only taken a couple of days to turn the edges under and glue. The background is Modern Meadow by Joel Dewberry and I think it looks great. I should probably get back to making my curtains soon now that’s sort of out of my system.

And this stack came through the post yesterday, just after I wrote I’m expecting my last few fabric packages before Christmas and not ordering anything else. I was lucky enough to win a $50 gift voucher for Abbi Mays from the Pets on Quilts competition on Lilypad Quilting and this is what I bought! 6x 1m cuts of Keiki Oops a Daisy from Moda. I only ordered Friday 17th from the US and they arrived in the UK on Tuesday 21st! AMAZING!

    ohh I love the perspective of Giant George – very interesting – you said it was all glued – is it just temp fabric glue or did you fuse him? are the edges turned under or are you going to sew them down?

      Hi Nina-Marie, it’s all glued with glue stick for now with all of the edges turned under. It’s just temporary until I sew them together but it’s a handy way to keep the pieces in the right places and the edges underneath.
