Do You Want to See My Underpants? -- A Friday Finish

I can't believe that I completed this little wall quilt.  I was motivated to finish it because I needed a challenge quilt for my local quilt guild for a quilt show in July.  I call this quilt The Underpants Project.


It measures a happy little 35" wide by 27" long.

This is finish #17 for 2017!

The way I outline quilted the underwear on the front it left little "ghost" underwear on the back.

 
Here you can tell the size a little better. 



Many of you know that I'm an Accuquilt girl.  I made these blocks using my Accuquilt Drunkard's Path die!  I did a little tutorial in 2014 here.

Aren't these blocks just stinkin' cute?  For the longest time I didn't know what I would do with them.  I was originally inspired by Kim's Blog called My Go-Go Life and she showed an adorable paper-pieced bra.  Kim posted that the pattern was free at Paper Panache. .  She posted about a free pattern and tutorial for panties by Penny from Sew Take A Hike.   You can see it here.  I need to give credit to Penny where credit is due.




I used this applique tool.  It's called Judy's Applique Gem.  I got it here at Gadget Girls.  I thought it would make a nice stocking stuffer for me a couple years ago at Christmas.  This is the first time I used it.  It was really nice to help me follow the unusual curve of the underpants.  The little straight part of the ruler also helped me with the straight part. 
 
I did a simple outline of the panties and then just a small stippling everywhere else.



Here's the ad I'm going to put with it for the show:
