I finished my second block last night:


I just gotta say...those little hearts are a pain in the tail!!! I got better at them as I went on but it was the first time making such a tight curve in outline stitch.

I did try out a couple new stitches too. I used an interlaced running stitch on the sleeves and the banner. I also used the couching technique on the ruffle around his neck. Both of those are fun to do and I can see using them more in the future.

Here are a couple detail shots of the more decorative parts:






Thanks for looking Smiley

I agree, this is a great bit of stitiching and I different types you used work well here. Is this going to be a quilt?

Well at the moment it's still up in the air on whether it's going to be a quilt...or a quilted wall hanging. Depends on how many of these blocks I can stand to do before I hollar "DONE!" hehe.

I have two more designs I definatly want to do and another two in the "strong possible" catagory. I'm still waffling on the others at the moment.

Though I think I'm going to take a break and work on a couple tea towels just for something different. I'm really trying to resist starting on an Alice day of the week towel set I found. I don't suppose it's much of a break to just do different Alice's is it? Wink

He looks fantastic!
I too have had a long love affair with anything Alice...A Wonderland quilt or wall hanging is an amazing idea. Please share it with us all when you have completed it Cheesy

Oh this is all kinds of wonderful!

If this were my project, I'd have another project going at the same time, so when I got sick of Lewis Carroll, I can go do something else.

Did you turn your hoop as you stitched the curves?  This is the only way I can get curves to come out right.

Do keep it up, I can't wait to see the rest!

Yeah I think I'm going to take a small project break and then do a few more blocks. I think it will keep me from getting too burned out. Then again the next block is starting to call me more and more...

I did turn my hoop as I worked. The tricky bit was figuring out the stitch leangth to use. I had to make teeny tiny stitches to keep the curve smooth. You can tell it was a bit wonky here and there but overall I think it came out OK.
