What are you most proud of? I researched tigers on the internet before making the applique. I think I did a pretty good job. I also like how I layered the grasses. My thread painting could use work... but it looks okay on the back. Background is so busy it is hard to see even up close. I will add more when I quilt the project. I have changed plans and will put it into a quilt for a nephew. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Plan your thread painting and quilting in accordance of the fabric.
