This is how it looked last night.
I did a blanket stitch to applique the bandanna.
I finished the embroidery this morning.
the next step is to mark the quilting. I am doing a 1/2″ grid on the diagonal. First I marked the edges to make the 16″ square, next I drew diagonal lines corner to corner, and then drew lines measuring 1/2″ from each of the diagonals. I use a #2 mechanical pencil. I have not had any problems with it washing out.
Next I put the batting down, it is a mottled gray. Then batting, I am using I leftover poly scrap. Then I pin on the top
Now to quilt it. I considered black thread but I didn’t want it to distract from the design so I am using white YLI 40 wt hand quilting thread. I am using a size 10 sharp Bohin needle. I am starting with the grid but I will also do some quilting on Teddy.
