Have the pattern reduced in size
Tape it onto a piece of plex-i-glass
Trace onto fusible web
Select the fabrics
making sure you put your favourite in
fuse the appliqué pieces in place
take a few hours to stitch it all down
check to make sure you "got it all"
Spend an afternoon machine quilting the piece
This is a new Fantastico thread by Superior Threads
and this is a King Tut variegated
sew a sleeve in place
make a label
Take a day at stitch and chat to do the hand sewing and voilà
it is done!
