So the rabbit's features are embroidered and I've sewn the backing on. I was kind of inspired by this video to try a few things and well . . . I'm pretty conflicted. I already asked the person who I promised this to, when it's done, if I could experiment with it and they gave me the go ahead. My conflict is as follows.
On the one hand, I can quilt and have the quilt stitches be the features for the tree, bushes, and grass, which is what I wanted to give a shot. The threads will really stand out on the back because they won't blend in. Which might be okay, because the back isn't really a feature, but now that I have all of this pieced together, I kind of don't like this plan anymore.
I could undo the backing, embroider the tree, bushes, and grass, and then redo the back, but that's also a lot of work.
The rabbit is too big and doesn't resemble my drawing, which is kind of okay. The ground however, if you look closely, is floating though. I don't know how I feel about that.
Right now, I feel more negative and tired about this project than I feel positive and energized, so I'm gonna sit on it for a few days and see how I feel down the road.
