One of my friends recently found these partially finished applique squares at a yard sale.  I would say that they were approximately 80% completed.  She brought the project to me so that I could finish the squares and she plans to sew the quilt together herself.

I had to create the hat/hair pattern for the Ladies & Gents from scratch.  The faces had been penciled in, so I was able to embroidery them & complete any unfinished applique work.  I also added the grape detail.

I am excited to see how the quilt will look once it is finished.  I enjoyed bringing these characters to life!

Thank you for the kind words.  They really were a joy to work on, all 27 squares!
