Here is another way I like to quilt. Buying a panel and adding matching borders so that I can just sit and stitch is very relaxing. I stitched around the characters and left fuzzy tails and textures. It was nice to just watch the animals come to life and feel the fabric, Am I weird or what? Thinking about the one I'm making it for is the most special part of sitting and just stitching and relaxing.
I stitched with two strands of yarn around the pig and sheep, horse and cow, and clouds and grass.
