    this is ready to quilt; it was from a kit; it was the most frustrating project i have ever worked on. i could whine for hours but now i would like to know about stitching it. zig zag or straight stitch?? on every piece??" what kind of thread??
    i know some people from here have done this but i cannot find where they have posted, i tried the search option already.
    i will also show another wall hanging that was much easier.
    the letters were purchased, (how easy i thought_) but they are plastic!!

    wow!! I love them both. The moose is awesome and I would love to see how you finish. I don't know how because I have not seen one before . But I would not cover it with to much stiching that is for sure. :thumbup: :thumbup:

    love them both !The moose is awesome. Guess I would try to quilt him the way you think his fur goes.I probably wouldn't try to stitch around every piece. If you used a good fusing agent the pieces should stay. And, it's a wall hanging,so probably won't get washed. JMO

    Both quilts are nice, but the moose is stunning. I have the wolf and lion so wondering what was the really hard part? Any pointers you learned from the process?

    I love your moose, very nice work. I just started the deer by the Bigfork Bay Company.

    I have done several applique wall hangings by McKenna Ryan. Here is how she suggests you free motion quilt around the applique pieces using YLI thread. I quilt every piece, because it really adds to the beauty of the wall hanging.

    I have not done much fusing, so I am not an expert. I was told that a stitch that goes _ _ _ _ /\ _ _ _ _/\ is good for edges.

    I have made hand appliqued dogs and an eagle. For that quilting, I did as quiltpd suggested and tried to suggest the animal's texture with the quilting, but light quilting elsewhere.

    I did a similar type and did a straight stitch around each piece. with matching color. Lots of work but looks beautiful.
