Little Quilts lotta time!

Wow. Yesterday and today, I spent most of my time working on finishing up my entry for Quilting Art's Inner Animal Challenge. It is due today. Figures. The challenge was to make an 8 1/2" x 11" representation of "our inner animal." The beginning of the call to enter was "show your wild side." HAH! Another part of it suggested that we do something that represented what animal we thought of ourselves as or an animal that others thought we resembled.

I'm a little unhappy with it...but it is a little neat too. Basically, I wanted to work with the photo I had taken last summer.

I don't know if I can show you the whole thing, but I thought it would be fun if you could see this little bit and take guesses at what it is.

If I have already told you what I was doing...then you're disqualified. :) I can't believe it, but I spent over 24 hours working on this little page-sized piece. So, lets hear what you have to think about what it is.

My first reaction was "fish!" but that probably means I'm way off. Is all that blue squiggly stuff stitching?

Good guess Shady, but no. Nothing fishy here. Yes, the squiggly blue stuff is stitching..but it's a cheat. I used a decorative stitch on my machine, but used it with free motion so I moved the piece where-ever and however I wanted the stitching. :)

I won't guess, but I will say it's cool!
