Cow Girls at Sunflower Branch - 3

Here are the girls finished. it is actually much more cheerful in real life.
The quilting is an all over sunflower connected by vines with leaves.

I am still amazed at the way you can applique shapes down with a zig zag which then fades into the background. I did the ladies with a varigated thread which has shades of tan. In the full photo, you can see that you aren't aware of the stitching at all.

I am not quite sure that this piece might have actually wanted a solid applique stitch, though. It might have helped to give it a more comical feel like cartoons. I think if I did this type of thing again, I would have more contrast between the cows and the background so they would stand out more.
