WIP Sunday: OWOH Start!

So after not getting many suggestions on the previous post on what I should make for One World One Heart giveaway day I took matters into my own hands. I had started sketching this little whimsy girl a while back and decided she will be the center piece for a work of art. I have tons of fun ideas for the background floating around in my head. We'll just have to see how it works out.

I'm also going to sew SIX yards of fabric together today for the backing of that WIP quilt I'm making for my little sister's 10th Birthday! The quilt top is all done and with the backing sewn I'll be taking it to the long arm quilter tomorrow. I hope it only takes her three days to get it done, because that will leave me three days to sew on the binding. Oh, and did I mention this quilt is HUGE! 81"X100"! Yikes! That is a lot of hand stitching that I hate.
Here is the backing fabric.

Lots to do! Off to eat some lunch and go to coffee with the gals, then sewing and art! ;)
