Gillian Travis kit - Indian woman Carrying Pot

Just one picture today.

I bought a kit from Gillian Travis at the Knitting and Stitching show in London earlier in the month and I spent yesterday evening making it. I don't normally enjoy doing kits but this one was nice because you choose some of the material yourself and Gillian encourages people to personalise them. Also, it used the applique technique where you stick the pieces to paper and then iron them on which I've read about and wanted to have a go at. 

I was pleased with my choice of fabrics and with the overall effect although I wish I'd added some sequins and beads for the jewellery as the gold paint I used doesn't show up enough. I'm also quite pleased with my free motion quilting as it's not something I'm very good at but it looks OK here. Plus my corners aren't at all bad (but don't look at the back). 

Gillian's stall at the show was fantastic. There are pictures on her blog here
