SpLaSh!

Just in time for this hot, HOT weather we are having & with the sound of our kids splashing it up in the pool---here is block #3 of the family quilt that I am making.
I was mighty scared to try and 'do' hair on these hand appliqued kids. The points of the girl's hair especially seemed impossible to do with fabric. How in the world would you needle turn such a tiny point? So to be safe, I did embroidery instead. And I must say, it makes the hair seem more like hair.

And hmmmmmmm...this boy looks remarkably just like our 8 year old.


And the girl certainly resembles our teen and tween daughter. Of course, our soon-to-be-15-year is rolling her eyes right now because she is 'so not like this little tyke pictured'! *grin*

As a teacher, one of my favorite parts of my job was doing bulletin boards. I loved designing them, cutting them out and seeing them come to life. Well, this is so similar to that. Only I'm using thread, needle and fabric instead of construction paper and staples.

I like it - the kids look so realistic. And the colors are so bright and cheerful - I can't wait to see what you come up with next.

It looks great. Love this block. The embroidery adds the right touch. And I love the fabric for the water.

Hey Dawn!
Thanks for your wonderful comments on my blog! I actually just have to bind the WIP quilt now so hopefully I can show it off soon!
I love your family quilt! Very summer-especially like the embroidered hair- just the right touch! Can't wait to see it all together!

Hey, I think the hair is the best part. I would have been scared to even try embroidery on them. Very nice. Speaking of very nice, what a nice surprise I received in the mail! :) It totally made my day...make that my weekend. I think I have told just about everyone.
