Wybie (testers wanted)
"Whoa! Check out Slugzilla!"
Wyborn Lovat, Coraline
The last of our Coraline blocks is up for testing, featuring Wyborn "Wybie" Lovat. Die-hard fans of the book might choose not to include him in your quilt for the sake of staying true to the original story, but for those of us who enjoy both the book and film versions, he makes a nice addition to the set. You can have some real fun with this piece in the texture of his hair and the way you finish out the skeleton gloves. There is some embroidery to his face, but it really helps bring the expression to life and I highly recommend making sure to include it even if you aren't an embroidery fan.
Wybie is also a 10 inch block to match the other blocks in the series. The lines for the skeleton glove bones are listed as embroidery lines in the pattern, but I really don't recommend embroidery for this particular section as it will be hard to get the look you are going for. Instead, use these lines as guidelines for bone placement. This is a perfect spot for textile paint or HTV. Try adding little nubs at the ends of each line to represent the bone shape.
Let me know if you would like to test out Wybie!
