One thing led to another, I came across another IG-er who made beautiful with free motion machine appliqué, Erin Cox. I ordered her book Sweet Tweets for more inspiration and off I went.
On the www I found a coloring picture from Jip and Janneke, and some pictures from a Volkswagen Transporter. With Vliesofix and my iron I prepared all the parts and ironed them on a piece of linen I had left over from a skirt I made about 15 years ago ;-).
It was a precise but fun process and I really enjoyed choosing exactly the right fabrics to go with the characters.
When I tried free motion appliqué without a piece of batting underneath it didn't work out as I wanted so in the end I decided to sandwich it first and then free motion appliqué.
For the binding I added a small red strip by cutting an 1.5" wide strip, iron it double and pin it between my quilt and my binding.
I was so in love with this quilt I found it hard to give it away but in the end all is well as it is so much fun to see someone happy with what you made her.
