|Oh my. Leigh has done it again. All these amazing animals are hand appliqued, and embroidered. I can't imagine the time that it must take to complete even one block, let alone all the ones in here.|
|I think that this elephant is my favorite block. Here, she looks so kind and gentle, but I bet in the wilds she'd trample you in a moment. The lines down from her eyes and outlining her trunk just bring her to life.|
Detail shot of the ruler work in the setting triangles. I kept hearing a voice in my head saying "Less is more", so I limited my quilting. Just a tight backgrond fill behind all the appliques, and lots of SID.
