    While I was at my sons basketball practice yesterday I worked on cutting this silhoutte out. This is another one Designed By: Mary Stenros @ Willow Bend Creations and is called "The Roundup".
    www.willowbendcreation.com

    I decided to try a batik but at this point am a little skeptical if I like it or if I would prefer the black... Anyways,here is it so far...I still have a touch more of the Upper Corral on the left to cut out... and I must say my neck arthritis has started protesting.
    This one I will say is a more of challenge with all the little windmill pieces and fence pieces. Definetly a Slow and easy going in cutting...

    Pattern is now drawn onto 24" Steam A Seam 2 Lite"

    Wow! That is fantastic! And I love the batik! I like the spring action scissors too. I have arthritis in my hands and wrists and can only use those, otherwise my fingers lock up. Can't wait to see the finished product.

    Your right...This is a lot of work...Turning out Beautifully though...Maybe you'll like the batik once you put it on top of the other fabric. I love it!!!

    Lovely work, I think it is really going to depend on what fabric you place it on how well it "pops". What are you planning?

    Wow, you really have been a busy girl. I'd be half blind and half so stiff I wish I was blind so I didn't have to finish it at this point. Your other works have left me drooling wishing I had the patience and skill to do that. Maybe will try a "LARGE" cutout with very little detail this summer. You are an inspiration!

    Holy cow thats is alot of work. Its beautifal. I love her patterns. I did the moose one but there wasn't as much cutting in that one as there is in yours. You did a great job on yours. I have the bear one too that I'm going to do next.
    Seeing yours makes me want to get started on the next one.
    I actually had alot of fun in her site one day and bought 4 or 5 of them. Addicting. Thanks for sharing all the along the way pictures. Beautifal. :thumbup:

    Thank you, and I agree.
    As this is my "work in progress" there isn't any planning, flying by the seat of my pants so to speak... will audition a couple of fabrics shortly.

    Love your quilts. Have you seen the 2 for 1 Hawaiian Applique? They keep the cut out pieces and use those to make another quilt. Of course they are not as intricate as yours, but it might work.
