Landscape progress

I had a very long and productive weekend, and the landscape quilt is now all pieced, with the appliques fused in place. Here it is with a selection of line drawings of some atypical Australian fauna while I positioned them for tracing prior to sandwiching:

The birds, amphibian, reptile and monotreme will be added in the quilting, so they'll be quite subtle. It's now sandwiched and ready to quilt, but currently James and I are finishing the quilting on his latest quilt, and the stretchy minkee backing on that is fussy on settings and slow going, and I don't want to muck around with things until that's done - hopefully in a day or two, since we're already late with it.
