Snoopy Quilting

Sometimes I am asked to quilt something on a quilt, that I have never done before.  Barb asked me to try and quilt Snoopy and Woodstock on her niece's quilt.  Well, how was I going to do that?  I researched (wandered aimlessly) on the internet for hours.  I went to sites that promised they could teach me how to draw the critters.  I spent hours (well a few minutes anyways) trying to draw the figures.  What can I say, I can't draw.
So, not one to give up, I downloaded a Snoopy figure, resized it to what I wanted and traced around it on the quilt.  I gave up on Woodstock as it was just a little too complicated for a continuous design.  The following quilt is the result.

Not exactly perfect, but Snoopy.  Don't be scared to try something new in your quilting design. You will be amazed at what you can come up with (out of desperation if nothing else.  LOL.)

This weeks hexagon is a reminder that winter is on it's way!  Have a great day.
