Once I found about 5 patterns, I let him choose. He picked this elephant pattern by Juliet over at The Tartankiwi. We printed the pattern and it had 18 pages! Okay....I got just a little nervous, but did not show this to my Son. I put my big girl quilter panties on and went to work! I had my husband help me cut it out to keep me in the proper order...another set of eyes never hurt.
|I just love the fabric for his ears.|
|Look at his cute little tail!!|
So those that do paper piece...how do you keep your fabrics and pattern in order. There are some tiny pieces that are next to impossible of labeling. Do you color them? Then use a colored code key to keep things in order? I used a pencil and wrote BG for the background back leg for the back leg, ect, but on the tiny pieces it did not work well. So any tips would be appreciated!
Thanks for stopping by, until I see you again, wishing you Quilty Hugs~ Heide
