Queen Chrysalis Quilt Square by adamlhumphreys Queen Chrysalis Quilt Square by adamlhumphreys
:iconchrysalisawesomeplz: Chryssie for the Pony Quilt Project Everfree 2014 charity auction organized by :iconwhiteheather:! :D

Since this was my first applique anything, I decided to play it safe and keep the design fairly simple while focusing on quality. In retrospect, I could’ve added many more design elements, (particularly some kind of background), but live and learn. Despite a few flaws, she turned out much better than I expected! I thought I’d have a lot of problems. ^^

Design: ~14.4 hours with Photoshop and SophieSew.
Execution: ~12 hours with Brother PE770/SE400, proper applique scissors, cotton materials, and Coats & Clark Dual Duty thread.

UPDATE: Completed quilt sold for $20,000! :iconraritysmile2plz:

EFNW Charity Quilt by WhiteHeather Amazing Charity Auction!This is just a short post from Everfree to let all of you know how much the quilt sold for at auction:
$20,000
No, I didn't put too many zeros. We made twenty thousand dollars for the Seattle children's hospital with the quilt! Thank you everyone who participated and made it possible! I wasn't planning on doing this again next year, but after that reception I might need to!

Did you hand sew this or machine sew? And did you use a sewing machine or embroidery? I want to make one of these myself, but I don't know where to start.

It's basically appliqued via an embroidery machine. There's no way I could do it by hand that well. Even then, I couldn't trust my machine not to hiccup. ^^ I did machine sew a negligible portion near the bottom though to complete the egg.

Would you be willing to make one of these as a commission?

I most certainly would! :D I also want to make another for myself, although I'd probably use shiny polyester embroidery thread rather than the dual duty thread since it wouldn't be washed. :)

How much might it cost to commission one? I don't have the money now, but maybe in the future, to add to my growing Chrysalis collection :love:

Well that's quite alright because I'm a little pressed myself ATM. :eager:
Probably $220 considering time, materials, tools, etc.
Out of curiosity, do you have pics of your collection? :iconpinkiesmileplz:

So what part exactly was sophie sew and what was manual?  Just trying to figure out how you lined up stitch lines over fabric.

adamlhumphreys Featured By Owner May 11, 2014  Professional General Artist
Oh, I think I know what you're saying now. Sorry for the confusion. Well, I just let the machine sew the fabric in place, cut around it, then let the machine finish. So nothing to line up in that regard. :)

Sweet. Iw ill have to try that. On an unrelated note, I can not get the slideshow to work. I can find it, but not get it to work on my page. How do I do this if you please?  I tried embedding the code and posting the url, neither worked.  Do I have to post it in a specific widget or wat? Thank you!

The choice was that or a fewer number of silver metallic style heart outlines on a darker fabric. I figured the lighter fabric would give better contrast. :D

I really like how you used the pattern of the fabric on her mane! It's like it has shading~ And the stitching is very nice too!
