|Last section in prep process!|
Over the last few weeks as I watched the NCAA men and women's basketball games, I stitched pieces on the chicken. In my last post, I shared that I had one more section to prep on the chicken. I truly thought I had much more appliqué remaining than that! It felt surreal to prep the last section.
In the photo above, I had to stitch the long leaf that runs under the chicken feet first because another piece was on top of a part of the leaf. Otherwise, the last section wasn't as difficult as I had thought!
|All the appliqué in place!|
The next step is to piece and stitch a couple borders around the appliqué. It measures 41 1/2x 47 1/2 inches. It is supposed to measure 42x48 inches. All that appliqué just takes up space! I know I'm going to be challenged with the pieced border! It feels surreal to be at this point. Although it also feels great to be this far!!!!
No, I didn't have a celebratory "nip" yet. I'm saving that for when the sleeve and label are complete and on the back of this project!
Thank you to 2017 Finish A Long to help me toward the finish.
