Crow Quilt – Sewing & Sewing down some more

As with any quilt project it is a labor of love to get through a phase of construction. The sewing down of the applique just kept going and going and going. As I worked along, I continued to take photos to show how it is done and keep myself amused. First lets look at sewing the leaves down.

I saved the crying baby crow for last.   He being the center piece of the quilt it needed extra care.   First I did the legs by lifting his bottom up and arranging them down.   Once I got them situated I moved the body around to make sure it was centered anatomically correct.  Then the sewing began.  As I went I pinned the edges over being sure to tuck the points down tightly.  How about a slide show for you to see the progress?

And now drum roll!!!  Here is the finished top.   Next steps will be adding embellishments and quilting the top to the batting and backing.
